Business Continuity and Risk Management by Douglas M. Henderson; Kurt J. EngemannThis is the first core textbook specifically designed for senior undergraduate and graduate college courses in business continuity and risk management. Extensively classroom tested, it offers everything instructors need to start a new course or enhance the one they teach�text, test bank, PowerPoint slides, case studies, review topics, discussion questions, bibliographies, and more. The modular design of the text allows flexibility in structuring a core course with the first ten chapters; focus in greater depth on information systems or emergency management with three additional chapters; or incorporate a comprehensive risk management approach with a Risk Modeling module of four chapters. Two of the six case studies are fictional businesses that continue chapter by chapter to help students gain experience in applying each chapter¿s principles to an organization. The first ten chapters cover the fundamentals of business continuity plan development, implementation, and maintenance, including crisis communication and crisis information management systems. The text is also appropriate for corporate professional development classes.

Crisis and Emergency Management by Z. Peradzynski; Ali FarazmandMore than 12 years have passed since the publication of the first edition of Crisis and Emergency Management. During that time numerous disasters--from 9/11 to massive earthquakes in Iran and China, to the giant Asian Tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and the Fukushima Tsunami and ensuing nuclear meltdown--have changed the way we manage catastrophic events. With contributions from leading experts, this second edition features 40 new chapters that address recent worldwide crises and what we have learned from emergency responses to them. See What's New in the Second Edition: Up-to-date concepts, theories, and practices Analysis of recent disasters and their effect on emergency management Policy and managerial lessons Suggestions for capacity building in crisis and emergency management The book covers a wide range of international issues using critical, empirical, and quantitative analyses. It discusses various approaches to topics such as resolving political tension and terrorism issues, the potential use of biological weapons, and the role of public relations in crisis. The author offers insight into organizational and community resiliency development; a "surprise management" theory in practice for upgrading the knowledge and skills in managing crises and governing emergencies; and better and more effective organizational, political, social, and managerial coordination in the processes. He presents case studies that enhance and advance the future theory and practice of crisis and emergency management, while at the same time providing practical advice that can be put to use immediately. Managing crises and governing emergencies in such an age of challenges demands a different kind of knowledge, skills, and attitudes that were not available yesterday. This book gives you valuable information with applications at the macro, micro, organizational, and interorganizational levels, preparing you for emergency management in an increasingly globalized and uncertain world.
