The awesome display of power that is unleashed by many of the world's natural disasters has aroused both terror and curiosity foe centuries. This series of books looks at the history of natural disasters and their effects on mankind and the environment. Tidal Waves have nothing to do with tides. They are caused by earthquakes on the sea bed, and they can crash on land causing widespread devastation. Floods can prevail anywhere on Earth and no part of the world can be considered immune to their devastating effect. Dramatic pictures illustrate this book which explains all aspects of these destructive powers. Famine is a widespread problem that can occur in any corner of the developing world. Almost one third of the land on Earth is prone to drought, and animal plagues can lead to famine and devastation. This book explores their causes and effects.
