" easy to read and interesting basic text that offers readers signposts to many relevant websites and references...One of the greatest strengths of the ABC of Conflict and Disaster is the attention it pays to the psychological aspects of disaster and conflict recovery, an often overlooked aspect of humanitarian relief work. The use of interesting and varied colour photographs throughout the book also illustrates the horrors and reality of this specialist area."
