Special Publication 1117: Disaster Resilience: A Guide to the Literature

The first report, NIST Special Publication 1117, was put together by Stanley Gilbert. This report provides a comprehensive review of the literature on disaster resilience. It includes a very readable survey bolstered by an annotated bibliography in an appendix. A separate appendix covers resilience-related software tools and databases. The concept of a disaster resilience index is covered both at a conceptual level and at a more theoretical level where the mathematical foundations are presented in an appendix. I believe this report will prove a useful reference document for researchers and practitioners alike.
