Summary
"Employing a broad definition of catastrophe, this book examines how urban communities conceived, adapted to, and were transformed by catastrophes. Competing views of gender figure in the telling and retelling of these tragedies, which are mediated by myth and memory. This is a nuanced account that physically and metaphorically maps men and women into the urban landscape and the worlds of catastrophe"--Provided by publisher
