Summary note
"Made disasters in India. The increasing frequency and intensity of disasters and the massive loss of lives and property, in contemporary times, has made the effective management of disasters a global movement. Consequently, several nations, in general, and disaster-prone countries such as India, in particular, have evolved an extensive framework of disaster management consisting of legal systems, policy perspective and implementation machinery along with ancillary support systems. Disaster Management in India critically evaluates the various policies, plans, structures, institutions, processes, as well as functionaries that work towards managing disasters in the country. It seeks to provoke its readers to not only revisit the entire discourse of disasters and their management but also develop a sense of disaster resilience in their lives and effectively deal with any unwarranted natural or man-made eventuality. Key Features Extensive review of disaster management from an interdisciplinary perspective Detailed analysis of various theoretical underpinnings necessary to understand the concept of disaster management Lucid explanation of ideas with tables, maps, flowcharts, appropriate examples and practice assignments Rajendra Kumar Pandey, Faculty, Department of Political Science, Chaudhary Charan Singh University, Meerut, Uttar Pradesh.
