About this product
- DescriptionWhat can be done to alleviate this? Why are such disasters so lethal? Why do people expose themselves to such hazards? Do mitigation programmes help? What effect does aid really have on the areas that receive it? By examining one particular cyclone-prone area of Southern India, this book comes up with answers to the questions.
- Author BiographyPeter Winchester worked for many years as an architect, during which time he became involved with housing in the developing world. The lack of understanding often shown by his profession in the social and political contexts in which they worked promoted his move into academic research. He now works as a consultant for the Flood Hazard Research Centre at Middlesex Polytechnic in London.
