Excellent resource for students of an interdisciplinary "bent" - sociology/ geography/ social psychology. I disagree with the apparent over use of "overly proper" words. Many terms exist so as to give even a broad definition some meaning. Technical words are paramount when grappling with complex issues - and I think the authors show a deft hand at explaining the ever-complex sociology of disasters. Even as time has passed since Hurricane Andrew, modes of social identification such as gender, class, and ethnicity are still slow to be embraced throughout disaster response and recovery policies. Great, thought-provoking work.
