What is the new normal in crisis and disaster management? How has emergency response changed as a result of the pandemic? Why do all emergency plans need to be updated? We will never go back to old ways in public health, policing, public protests, procurement, politics, and a wide range of other public policy issues. Race relations and interactions with Indigenous communities should never be the same.
This remarkable group of academics, political leaders, emergency responders, and activists explore these topics in detail:
- – Johns Hopkins’, Alison Abraham

- – Diplomat, Randolph Mank
- – Johns Hopkins’, Derek Ng
- – Political Aid, Jordan O’Brien

Think of this book as free. Pre-ordering increases the print run and drives the unit price down. We want to reward you for that help. We don’t yet know the print run or exact cost. But we’re trying to keep the retail price down to $49.95 which is half the cost of most academic publications with 120,000 or so words. We want to keep this book accessible to people who really need its advice. But we also want you to have immediate improvements in your crisis planning and response. That’s why when you pre-order, you will immediately receive digital downloads of audio, video, and text material with a value more than double the cost of the book.
