doom: the politics of catastrophe

Niall Ferguson’s latest book, »Doom«, presents a global history of disasters — from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius to the plague pandemic to the Chernobyl nuclear accident — and explores how we can and must learn from the past. This book »promises to make a contribution to improving our management of future disasters.« [New York Times Book Review]
