Abstract:

Collects and abstracts literature describing reconstruction efforts following major peacetime and wartime disasters, with emphasis on recovery from war-produced generalized disaster in highly industralized societies, particularly since 1939. Soviet reconstruction literature is analyzed, and abstracts of both Russian- and England-language materials are presented. Another section deals with German and Austrian recovery experiences following World War II, and includes abstracts of both German- and English-language sources. Material on Belgium, Europe, France, Japan, The Netherlands, Poland, and the United Kingdom is also cited. Literature on a hypothetical disaster nuclear attack and on natural disaster is examined, as well as general work and behavioral studies related to various types of disaster.
