9780872895706: Managing Crises: Responses To Large-Scale Emergencies

From floods to fires, tornadoes to terrorist attacks, governments must respond to a variety of crises and meet reasonable standards of performance. What accounts for governments effective responses to unfolding disasters? How should they organize and plan for significant emergencies? With fifteen adapted Kennedy School cases, readers experience first-hand a series of large-scale emergencies and come away with a clear sense of the different types of disaster situations governments confront, with each type requiring different planning, resourcing, skill-building, leadership, and execution.

Grappling with the details of flawed responses to the LA Riots or Hurricane Katrina, or with the success of the Incident Management System during the Pentagon fire on 9/11, readers start to see the ways in which responders can improve capabilities and more adeptly navigate between technical or operational needs and political considerations.

Review:

Managing Crises fills a glaring need in the public administration literature to address how managers practically respond to extreme situations. For students of decision-making, policy planning and implementation, and organizational behavior, these studies will prove invaluable. --Herbert E. Gooch III, California Lutheran University

Managing Crises provides a wide-ranging, in-depth examination of a variety of catastrophic and emergency situations. Its main strength is its clear-eyed presentation of a variety of crisis management situations. This book will be an extremely valuable resource for courses dealing with emergency management, disaster response and recovery, homeland security, and incident command. It could also be used as a supplementary text in courses in the areas of public administration, intergovernmental relations, public policy and sociology. --Steven D. Stehr, Washington State University
