About the product

The Long Road to Recovery is about community responses to types of industrial disasters that, going far beyond the routine, constitute 'surprise' disaster. Straining against the limits of society's capacity to adjust, these disasters are producing unprecedented consequences and they are emerging faster and lasting longer than ever before. This book is the result of long-term case-studies of seven highly publicized industrial disasters that occurred in different parts of the world in the years between 1949 and 1989 in Japan, the United States of America, Italy, India, Ukraine, Iran and Alaska.
