The Katrina Bookshelf

Edited by Kai Erikson

Hurricane Katrina was the most telling disaster in our national experience, revealing so much about the nature of disasters in general, about the social world we live in, and about ourselves. The Katrina Bookshelf is the result of a national effort to bring experts together in a collaborative program of research on the human costs of the disaster. Supported by the Ford, Gates, MacArthur, Rockefeller, and Russell Sage Foundations and sponsored by the Social Science Research Council, the Katrina Bookshelf is the most comprehensive social science coverage of a disaster to be found anywhere in the literature.
