Anyone who was not in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent flooding of the city experienced the disaster as a media event, a flood of images pouring across television and computer screens. The twenty-four-hour news cycle created a surplus of representation that overwhelmed viewers and complicated understandings of the storm, the flood, and the aftermath. As time passed, documentary and fictional filmmakers took up the challenge of explaining what had happened in New Orleans, reaching beyond news reports to portray the lived experiences of survivors of Katrina. But while these narratives presented alternative understandings and more opportunities for empathy than TV news, Katrina remained a mediated experience. In Flood of Images, Bernie Cook offers the most in-depth, wide-ranging, and carefully argued analysis of the mediation and meanings of Katrina. He engages in innovative, close, and comparative visual readings of news coverage on CNN, Fox News, and NBC; documentaries including Spike Lee's When the Levees Broke and If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don't Rise, Tia Lessin and Carl Deal's Trouble the Water, and Dawn Logsdon and Lolis Elie's Faubourg Treme; and the HBO drama Treme. Cook examines the production practices that shaped Katrina-as-media-event, exploring how those choices structured the possible memories and meanings of Katrina and how the media's memory-making has been contested. In Flood of Images, Cook intervenes in the ongoing process of remembering and understanding Katrina.

The ABC's best journalists and photographers bring you a moving account of the devastating Queensland floods, and a tribute to the bravery of individuals and communities. Foreword by Premier Anna Bligh. All royalties donated to the Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal. the Queensland floods of 2010-11 wreaked untold destruction, with three-quarters of the state declared a disaster zone. But out of the devastation to lives and property we have seen countless examples of the bravery and selflessness of individuals, and of communities banding together. With its extensive network of regional and metropolitan reporters, the ABC was on the ground when the floods hit, often getting first access to inundated towns and communities. As Premier Anna Bligh writes in her Foreword, 'the ABC played an incredibly important role during the flooding disaster, broadcasting regular updates across the state.' the events that ABC journalists witnessed, the people they met, and the extraordinary stories they were told are now captured in 14 poignant essays and hundreds of unforgettable images. From Emerald and Rockhampton to Brisbane and Grantham, this is a moving account of one of our worst natural disasters in living memory. It serves not only as a record of the floods and their impact on both small towns and cities, but as a lasting testament to the courage and strength of the people of Queensland. In buying this book you are helping the people of Queensland recover from the floods - the publisher will donate all royalties to the Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal.

From the time settlers first pushed into the Ohio Valley, floods were an accepted fact of life. After each flood, people shoveled the mud from their doors and set about rebuilding their towns. In 1884, the Ohio River washed away 2,000 homes. In 1913, an even worse flood swept down the river. People labeled it the "granddaddy" of all floods. Little did they know there was worse yet to come. In 1937, raging floodwaters inundated thousands of houses, businesses, factories, and farms in a half dozen states, drove one million people from their homes, claimed nearly 400 lives, and recorded $500 million in damages. Adding to the misery was the fact that the disaster came during the depths of the Depression, when many families were already struggling. Images of America: The Great Ohio River Flood of 1937 brings together 200 vintage images that offer readers a look at one of the darkest chapters in the region's history.
