After Disaster: Agenda Setting, Public Policy, And Focusing Events
Disasters like earthquakes are known as focusing events -- sudden calamities that cause both citizens and policymakers to pay more attention to a public problem and often to press for solutions. This book, the first comprehensive analysis of these dramatic events, explains how and why some public disasters change political agendas and, ultimately, public policies.
