14 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 208 libraries worldwide
Organizational disasters destroy not only lives but also reputations, resources, legitimacy and trust. The failures of electricity networks, the outbreak of epidemic diseases, the malfunctioning of intelligence services before 9/11, and corporate financial scandals are distressing reminders of how things can go wrong, particularly in large, and often highly regarded, social systems.

Why is it that some organizations are relatively immune to failure and others are more prone to accidents? Do the very measures that are taken to increase safety contribute to accidents? Finally, can societies, organizations, and individuals learn from failures and reduce or remove dangers?
