SUMMARY

Impacts of landslides range from site destruction, through problems for the maintenance of buildings and infrastructure, to an impediment for economic development. Previous attempts to address landslide risk have either treated components of the problem in isolation or characterised the wider issue from just a single discipline perspective. This book takes a holistic view of landslide hazard and risk through the development of integrated approaches to analysis, perception and management. Landslide Hazard and Risk brings together a wide range of experience, covering the social, economic and cultural context, management options, and the application of science and technology, for the reduction of risk from landslides. This book is divided into four major parts covering conceptual models in approaching landslide risk, evaluation of risk, management of risk and end-to-end solutions of risk. It examines risk assessment and management from theory to practice, from conventional methodology to future possibilities. Provides a range of multidisciplinary approaches and guidance on their appropriate use. Presents specifications and contexts for the next generation of process models. Focuses on the means and methods of investigation, and the treatment of data to represent the probabilities and uncertainties of hazard and risk. Evaluates state-of-the-art techniques and future directions. This book is essential reading for professionals and practitioners in landscape, watershed and hazard management, as well as risk analysts, geomorphologists, hydrologists, foresters and environmental consultants. Would be excellent background reading for researchers and graduate students interested in landslides, hazards, risk assessment and slope stability in Departments of Geography, Earth Science, Environmental Science, Civil Engineering and Planning.Glade, Thomas is the author of 'Landslide Hazard and Risk ', published 2005 under ISBN 9780471486633 and ISBN 0471486639.
