A revised version of the gender chapter in Social Vulnerability to Disasters (2nd ed., D. Thomas et al. eds., 2013) is also forthcoming by Jennifer Tobin-Gurley and E. Enarson, with a strong US focus. In addition to earlier global gender and disaster compilations with US chapters (Enarson & Morrow, 1998; Enarson & Chakrabarti, 2010), a recent book may be of interest to NHMA members:
