In this book, Celia Wells draws on a wide range of legal and other sources to analyse how various agencies and legal structures interact in responding to disasters.

In doing so, she brings together the areas of personal injury and other civil litigation; public law responses such as emergency planning and public enquiries; and the increasing use of criminal prosecution as a mechanism of blame following disaster.
