Day_21 : Disaster and Sociology

Émile Durkheim, maybe you know the name if you are interested in sociology. His book “suicide” which published a long, long time ago, in 1897, is still not old I feel. I was so impressed to know the book when I started to study sociology before. After I began to do disaster research, I remembered the memory to do study Durkeim’s suicide and  tried to combine his concept with disaster research on Hurricane Katrina. Statistical data were used to explain the social background to explain why so many people were victimized step by step.


The above is the disaster report on the Hurricane Katrina.
