520    The book looks at the factors influencing the level of 
       preparedness of communities exposed to flooding. It is 
       based on original research carried out in twelve areas in 
       southern Poland that suffered serious flood damage in the 
       past thirty years. The underlying research was intended, 
       on the one hand, to verify modern concepts explaining the 
       behaviour of people who were exposed to natural hazards 
       and, on the other, to explore the influence of the local 
       natural, social, historical and economic contexts that 
       could modify that behaviour. The book has three main 
       threads: the social memory of floods and their image as it
       evolves in time; the influence of social and economic 
       conditions (social vulnerability) on the preparedness to 
       take on flood mitigation measures; and the role of risk 
       communication in strengthening flood resilience. The main 
       body of the work is based on 1) surveys carried out among 
       the flood-affected population and members of local crisis 
       services, 2) interviews with the flood-affected population
       and with members of administration and services (Police, 
       Fire Dept.) with a history of rescue missions, and 3) an 
       analysis of social media content and of local 
       administration and government agency websites and land-use
       planning documents. The primary data collected by the 
       authors was supplemented by statistics on the impact of 
       floods occurring in the study areas. The data is presented
       in tables, graphs and maps for easier comprehension. The 
       book is aimed at researchers and students, as well as at 
       practitioners interested in risk perception, flood 
       memories, social vulnerability & resilience studies, 
       social capacity building, risk communication & education
