This book contributes to the growing literature on community resilience with a specific emphasis on resiliency of business community in relation to local governance. The book not only provides theoretical perspectives on resilience but also offer practical insight for professionals in the field." -Naim Kapucu, University of Central Florida "Understanding business disaster planning is an important topic not only to small, medium, and large companies, but also to local government officials.
