Solid hardcover.; "It is, then, curious that so little attention has so far been paid to behavior in the particularly stressful situation of an emergency or actual disaster. By definition, such situations are unusual, and if they are to be properly met, controlled and returned to normality then correct, but often unaccustomed, actions must be taken, sometimes at great spped. These actions are required not only from emergency managers only but also from survivors, and both classes may experience stresses, which may be made manifest in behavior either immediately or at some later date. The needs of both classes of people for support, for "non-material assistance" must be anticipated, planned for, and met." - Foreword by David Carter. ; Stress in Modern Society; Ex-Library; Vol. 10; 229 pages.
