Um comentário sobre terremotos e incêndios

Translated title of the contribution: Shake and bake: A commentary on earthquakes and fire

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

This commentary on earthquakes and fire by Stephen J. Pyne focuses in notorious episodes as Lisbon 1755, San Francisco 1906, Tokyo 1923 as urban conflagrations in a scenario of "shake, then bake". Discussing the history of earthquakes, cities and fires, he concludes that "disastrous fires let history overwhelm geography; preventative measures let geography temper history". Pyne has written over 30 books, mostly on the history and management of wildland and rural fire, including big-screen surveys for the U.S., Canada, Australia, Europe (including Russia), and the world generally, and is completing a multi-volume fire history of the U.S. and its regions since 1960.
