Lindell, Prater author two new
emergency management books



Wiley Publishing has recently released two new emergency planning and management texts authored by scientists from the Hazard Reduction and Recovery Center (HRRC) at Texas A&M University’s College of Architecture.

“Emergency Planning,” was co-authored by Michael Lindell, HRRC Faculty Fellow and professor of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning, and Ronald Perry, of Arizona State University.

The 552-page book guides readers through the steps of developing emergency management plans, offering a number of strategies to help ensure success. It delves into the patterns of human disaster behavior, social psychology, and communication as well as the basics of generic protective actions, planning concepts, implementation, and action.

“Introduction to Emergency Management,” co-authored by Lindell and Carla Prater, associate HRRC director, provides an invaluable resource for addressing all phases of emergency management. The 600-page book covers everything from the social and environmental processes that generate hazards, to vulnerability analysis, hazard mitigation, emergency response, and disaster recovery.

The book may be ordered from the Wiley website at WileyTitle/
