Book Description:
For those who think that 2012 is the year for Armageddon, then you might take courage from this book on mass trauma and its companion book on individual trauma. The stories about disasters and traumas in the book span the globe, with a focus on the people from Australia, African, Bangladesh, New Zealand, Japan, Sri Lanka, and the USA. This book comes at a time when mass disasters and mass trauma abound. It is impossible to turn on the television and not see incidents of floods, earthquakes, wildfires, avalanches, and every kind of natural disaster, competing with air space with the latest updates on wars, terrorism, mass murders, civil unrest, famine and mass migration.

The authors speak passionately about mass disasters and mass traumas, they argue about the best way of assisting communities during and after disasters and traumas on a large scale. They talk about the presence and absence of resilience and the need to keep recovery in perspective and to ‘watch our language’ when we speak about post traumatic stress disorders. Almost all authors will join the admonition that communities should be not only involved in recovery, but encouraged to instigate new ways of operating in a post-disaster community.

We hope that readers will feel more empowered after reading the discussions about resilience, courage and solidarity to handle whatever comes their way, and we recommend the companion text on Individual Trauma by the same editors and publisher. (Imprint: Nova)
