THE FULL-SCALE STORY
OF TWO CITIES IN CRISIS
After the two tornadoes dipped
down into Waco and San Angelo,
Texas, in 1953, 125 were dead,
$50,000,000 worth of property was
destroyed, and the social organiza-
tions of two cities had been wrecked.
The total effect of these catastro-
phes on the economic, governmental,
and community structures, and the
emotional reactions of its victims
(verbatim reports), have been fully
documented in TORNADOES OVER
TEXAS, by Harry Estill Moore, Pro-
fessor of Sociology, at the Univer-
sity of Texas. The first such investi-
gation of its kind, it is rich in its
implications for the development of
a theory of disaster, and important
to all social scientists. Only $5.00
