The earthquakes in Northridge, Kobe, Turkey, and Taiwan in the 1990s made it the costliest catastrophe decade on record. Not only has this led to an improved understanding of how buildings perform in earthquakes, it also changed how such catastrophes are viewed by the insurance industry. Earthquake Protection presents unique, comprehensive coverage on such key aspects as mitigation developments, historic buildings experience, and industrial facilities in earthquakes but also the critical role of the insurance and risk management business.
