By Sandrine Revet

Le 15 décembre 1999, de puissantes inondations s’abattent sur le Venezuela. Elles provoquent des coulées de boue meurtrières dans une grande partie de l’état côtier et urbain de Vargas. à partir d’une enquête ethnographique qui débute quelques mois après l’événement, au second de l’intervention des acteurs humanitaires, et se poursuit jusqu’en 2005 au cours de los angeles reconstruction de los angeles région, cet ouvrage porte un regard anthropologique sur cette disaster « naturelle ». Il s’agit ici de saisir, au-delà du compte-rendu rapide, worldwide, inquiet et désabusé que les médias nous offrent de ces crises, tout ce qui se produit dans les failles et dans les fissures de cette disaster. Il s’agit également de comprendre remark un ensemble de phénomènes physiques (pluies, coulées de boue, glissements de terrain, chutes de pierres...) devient un événement social : l. a. Tragedia. Dans cette point of view, l. a. disaster est appréhendée non comme une donnée, mais comme une development. En analysant remark se déclinent les différentes levels de l’urgence (survie, secours, counsel) puis de los angeles reconstruction, en s’interrogeant sur les multiples façons de donner du sens au désastre et en replaçant l’événement dans une viewpoint historique à lengthy terme, l’auteur élabore une réflexion sur los angeles façon dont les sociétés contemporaines affrontent et dénouent de telles tragédies.
