about

For those who want to know more about organizations that provide assistance to refugees and disaster relief victims, the Dictionary is an ideal staring point. The timeline traces the history of refugee movements and disasters during the twentieth century. The introduction, taking a broader view, outlines the tumultuous history of refugee movements and disasters from early times to the present day while discussing the complications, challenges and coping strategies of the international community. The dictionary provides A-Z entries on both natural and man-made disasters, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations, basic concepts, and people who have played a notable role. Also included is an extensive list of acronyms and abbreviations to sort out the various organizations. The bibliography directs readers to a plethora of books, articles, and government documents on the same topic. A must for the reference collection--community colleges, college, university and large public libraries.
Robert F. Gorman, Professor of Political Science at Southwest Texas State University, has visited refugee camps throughout Africa and Southeast Asia and has worked with international organizations on refugee issues in the U.S. Department of State and in the private voluntary sector.
