Find out about the tsunamis that have dominated news bulletins around the world.

Find out about the tsunamis that have hit the headlines over the past decade. Read about the devastating consequences of the two enormous tsunami waves that devastated first communities throughout south-east Asia in 2004, and then the coast of Japan in 2011. This book looks at why these occurrences are so difficult to predict and what happens to the affected communities after disaster has struck.

The Planet in Peril series answers these questions and many more, looking at three case studies of recent natural disasters to see what happened, how people coped in the aftermath, and how governments, charities and aid agencies work together to rebuild devastated communities.
