Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

CNN Reports: Katrina-State of Emergency provides a chronological account of the hurricane through a selection of CNN transcripts and photos documenting all facets of the disaster starting from past studies predicting such a tragedy to the path of the hurricane to the consequences surrounding the flooding and delayed rescue efforts.

The book details events in New Orleans and along the Gulf Coast in the days before Hurricane Katrina made landfall and the subsequent weeks of those communities recovering from its destructive wake. The book includes first-hand accounts from many of the more than 200 CNN anchors, correspondents, and production members dispatched to Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas, and Tennessee to cover the aftermath.

CNN will donate all royalties to the American Red Cross Hurricane Katrina Disaster Relief Fund, with AMP matching that donation.

Book News Annotation:

This chronicle of the first two weeks of the Hurricane Katrina disaster combines photojournalism, visual and textual material from CNN's website, and transcripts from the network's broadcast news reports and on-air interviews. The book's treatment of the disaster generally mirrors the what was broadcast on the news network as the disaster unfolded, with dramatic coverage of destruction, human misery, heroic rescues, and inescapable anger at government neglect; relatively superficial discussion of underlying socioeconomic issues; and near total neglect of the long-term political battles being fought by people in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast hoping to reconstruct their lives in the face of greedy development interests and allied political opportunists. CNN will be donating all of its royalties from the book to the American Red Cross Katrina Relief Effort, and the publisher will match the donation.
