Abstract:

"Global Crisis and Sustainability Technologies is a nontechnical introduction and overview of the current "politico-engineering"--Politically initiated engineering -- intended for an international relationship. The book focuses specifically on technologies for crisis and societal sustainability in response to natural disasters, infectious diseases, enormous accidents, terrorist or criminal incidents, war or territorial invasions, elimination of toxic materials, and renewable energy, as well as risk management. The case studies cited draw from the author's experience in the United States, Japan, and China, and act as instructive studies that may be extended and applied to other countries."--Publisher's website.
