AUTHOR

Erikson, Kai T.

SUMMARY

Unlike earthquakes and other natural catastrophes, this "new species of trouble" afflicts persons and groups in particularly disruptive ways. With clear-eyed compassion, in vivid narrative and in participants' own words, Kai Erikson describes how certain communities have faced such disasters. He shows conclusively that new attention must be paid to their experiences if people are to maintain elementary confidence not only in themselves but in society, government, and even life itself.Erikson, Kai T. is the author of 'New Species of Trouble The Human Experience of Modern Disasters', published 1995 under ISBN 9780393313192 and ISBN 0393313190.
