Superstorm Sandy: The Inevitable Destruction and Reconstruction of the Jersey Shore

by

Why do people build in areas open to repeated natural disasters? Drawing on a variety of insights from environmental sociology, Superstorm Sandy offers a wide-ranging look at the Jersey Shore both before and after this disaster, examining the many factors--such as cultural attachment, tourism revenues, and governmental regulation--that combined to create a highly vulnerable coastal region and that fueled the demand to rebuild.
