Reviews

"This stimulating collection is impressive in every way - from the chronological and geographic range of the twentieth-century Asian disasters covered to the international composition of contributing authors. Professor Yau's imaginative and wide-ranging editorial vision inspires confidence that the comparative and cosmopolitan study of modern Asia is in terrifically capable hands." - John W. Dower, Ford International Professor of History, Emeritus, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

"This is a handsome volume that brings together diverse experts in the field from multidisciplinary backgrounds. It attempts to reconstruct some important memories of natural disasters that happened in recent times. Designed in a chronological order, the reader is taken on a journey from reactions to the event to memory recollection and physical reconstruction. The tangible and intangible aspects of post-disaster work are weaved into the narrative as a hindsight reflection of the events." - Tai Wei Lim, Assistant Professor, Department of Japanese Studies, Chinese University of Hong Kong
