Summary and Info
The book seeks to understand how societies and cultures deal with disaster and the rhetorical means they resort to in order to represent it. Since culture, the media and the arts deal with the perception and the processing of catastrophe, what kind of social knowledge does this process produce and how does it contribute to the sustainable development of societies?
