Disaster Policy and Politics combines evidence-based research with mini-case studies of recent events to demonstrate the fundamental principles of emergency management and to explore the impact that disasters have had on U.S. policy. Paying special attention to the role of key actors—decision makers at the federal, state, and local levels; scientists; engineers; civil and military personnel; and first responders—author Richard Sylves explores how researchers contribute to and engage in disaster policy development and management. The highly anticipated Third Edition explores the radical change in policy and politics after the occurrence of recent disasters such as hurricanes Irma, Maria, and Harvey; Hawaii′s false nuclear attack warning; and responses to U.S. wildfires. The book’s comprehensive "all-hazards" approach introduces students to the important public policy, organizational management, and leadership issues they may need as future practitioners and leaders in the field.

When the international community responds to a massive humanitarian emergency, such as the one in Liberia, the operation that results is both complicated and ephemeral. The multifaceted nature of the problems in the crisis area attracts many different responses ranging from the deployment of thousands of international troops and observers to groups of civilians who act locally. Acting simultaneously but not always in concert with the response operations are the regional and international political leaders. In the context of Liberia, the crisis and the international response to it developed in stages, each with its own idiosyncratic nature, characteristic form of violence, cast of dominant personalities, and fresh bouts of extreme violence. Peacekeepers, Politicians, and Warlords is an original account of the entire peace process in Liberia that penetrates the roles of the peacekeepers, the warlords and the politicians who were the key actors in this narrative.

By examining UN peace-keeping activities from 1956 up to the present, the book explains how UN involvement in peace-keeping missions has expanded over time to include functions traditionally thought of as governing functions. The book argues that present demands have stretched the UN's resources and organisational capacity to the limit, thus compromising its credibility. This implies that the concept of peace-keeping needs to be redefined and readjusted according to UN capacity.

While waging war is almost as old as humanity, peacekeeping is recent but expanding rapidly. Over the past few decades, dozens of operations have been launched-many of them still effective-and more are on the way. Their existence is crucial, yet the general public knows relatively little about them. The A to Z of Multinational Peacekeeping is designed to help fill this gap. Based on the updated and revised edition of Historical Dictionary of Multinational Peacekeeping, it consists of an introduction, chronology, list of acronyms, bibliography, and dictionary. The dictionary includes several hundred entries on the peacekeeping bodies, organizations that established them, important persons involved, countries in which they were deployed, and main contributing countries. Such information provides the background and depth lacking in current media reporting. Book jacket.
