In this book, gender and disaster researcher Elaine Enarson presents a comprehensive assessment, encompassing both theory and practice, of how gender shapes disaster vulnerability and resilience. Written from and about the United States, the text reflects the broad discourse around gender and disaster as it has developed over the past two decades. Targeting practitioners, policy makers, and researchers, the book is based on field research on women and gender in US disasters.
