Routledge Press has published a book on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina titled There Is No Such Thing As a Natural Disaster: Race, Class, and Katrina. This is the first comprehensive critical book on the catastrophic soical impact of Hurricane Katrina. There are chapters devoted to affordable housing, lending and community investment, reclaiming houses and communities (I co-authored that chapter), education, public health, environmental justice, etc. The book offers strategic guidance on how to rebuild New Orleans and surrounding communities in an equitable and just manner.

I have attached a link below if you are interested in ordering a copy. All royalties generated from the sale of the book will be donated to Emergency Communities to their rebuilding efforts in New Orleans and surrounding communities. For more information about the book, see or contact Routledge at 1-800-634-7064.
