Moving on from the 'coups and quakes' mode
Review of After the Tsunami: Crisis Communication in Finland and Sweden, edited by Ullamaija Kivikuru and Lars Nord
This collection of essays is primarily focused, as the sub-title of the volume indicates, on crisis communication in two specific countries; but it is inherent in the nature of the events of Decemeber 2004 that they defy such reductionism. Sweden and Finland provide a starting-point, rather than an end-point, for the analyses simply because although they were 'geographically non-impacted countries' (that is, the tsunami did not occur in either), the consequence for both were huge.
