about

Terrorism. Tsunamis. Earthquakes. Epidemics. What do they have in common? Each is a crisis. Each requires an urgent response. Each demands leadership—crisis leadership—to recover and rebound. But what is crisis leadership? When does it succeed? What makes it fail? Crisis Leadership: From Asia to Africa and America answers these questions. Written by a global expert in crisis leadership tested to his limits in rebuilding Aceh after the iconic Indian Ocean Tsunami of 2004, Crisis Leadership teases out the common threads that help and hinder our response to crises drawing on examples from the 9/11 terrorist attack on New York, the author’s Aceh experience and subsequent journey, Japan’s tsunami, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, Haiti’s earthquake, genocide in Sudan through to the latest Ebola outbreak in West Africa that is now threatening the world. Stripping bare leadership failures in agencies like the World Bank, United Nations and World Health Organization, Crisis Leadership also finds much to praise especially in the US response to Ebola. This timely and controversial work will appeal to anyone keen to understand the many crisis we face, what we can learn from them and how we can respond in creating a better, safer world.
