The tsunami that tore through Southern Asia on December 26, 2004, killed more than 200,000 people. Thousands are still missing and millions more lost their homes. Though the numbers defy comprehension, this book presents a clear and vivid picture of what happened on that day and the response, both immediate and long-term, to this catastrophe.
"This book is certainly up-to-date, and presents in unbiased, well-reasoned discussion of the subject. There are copious notes and an equally list of books and other sources consulted, as well as contact information on organizations mentioned in the text."
