Editor McEntire is affiliated with the U. of North Texas' Department of Public Administration, and several contributors are also affiliated with that institution in a variety of fields including geography, anthropology, aging, and economic development; other contributors from (mostly) US academic institutions and government agencies represent the fields of sociology, criminology, emergency health services, counseling, emergency communications, and urban planning. All are united by a serious professional interest in preparing for disasters. The 24 contributed chapters stride toward an inter-disciplinary effort, which the editor distinguishes in the initial chapter from "multidisciplinary," because the goal is to integrate various perspectives into a coherent approach.
