This unique collection featuring 501 of the world's worst disasters spans almost 2,500 years of history. It includes natural calamities such as the eruption of Vesuvius or the Indian Ocean tsunami, unstoppable diseases like the Black Death or AIDS and terrible accidents like the sinking of the Titanic. Most shocking of all are those disasters that need never have happened, created by sheer savagery and negligence of man - catastrophic devastation by war, genocide and massacre, or tragedies like Chernobyl or Bhopal. And then there are the all-too frequent environmental, economic and political disasters bgrought about by the folly or greed of a few that ultimately wreak havoc on the lives of many.
