Focuses on how the normal processes of the Earth concentrate their energies and deal heavy blows to humans and their structures.

Throughout the book, certain themes are maintained: energy sources underlying disasters; plate tectonics and climate change; earth processes operating in rock, water, and atmosphere; significance of geologic time; complexities of multiple variables operating simultaneously; detailed and readable case studies.--From publisher description.
