Disaster Technology: An Annotated Bibliography presents an annotated bibliography of disaster technology. The references are arranged in the following sections: relief organization, medical aspects (planning, general, nutrition), sociological aspects, and physical aspects (general, earthquakes). The abstracts are arranged alphabetically by author's name in each section. Some of the controversial issues and the areas related to disaster technology are reviewed. This volume consists of seven chapters, the first of which introduces the reader to general aspects of relief work especially international disaster aid. Logistic, administrative, political, and economic factors are highlighted. The next three chapters deal with medical aspects of relief work and cover hospital disaster planning and surgical triage, medical problems arising from disasters, and nutritional problems of relevance to development as well as to disasters. Attention then turns to sociological studies of disasters that have been carried out in industrialized societies in general and America in particular. Some work on psychological and psychiatric factors is considered. The chapters on physical aspects of disaster relief includes literature on public health engineering, design for disaster (including emergency shelter), and prevention and warning techniques. Earthquakes are considered separately in the final chapter. This book is written to supply relief agencies with information on the published and unpublished literature available concerning technical aspects of disaster relief and prevention with special emphasis on developing countries. It is also intended to provide those involved in relevant research with information on disaster topics from other disciplines.
