The Five People You Meet in Hell: Surviving Katrina by Robert Smallwood (Paperback - February 17, 2006) A riveting first-person account of the events in New Orleans as Hurricane Katrina hit, and the anarchy and desperation of the aftermath.

Come Hell or High Water: Hurricane Katrina and the Color of Disaster by Michael Eric Dyson (Hardcover - February 28, 2006) The first major book to be released about Hurricane Katrina, Dyson's volume not only chronicles what happened when, it also argues that the nation's failure to offer timely aid to Katrina's victims indicates deeper problems in race and class relations. Dyson's time lines will surely be disputed, his indictments of specific New Orleans failures defended or whitewashed. But these points are secondary. More important are the larger questions Dyson (Between God and Gangsta Rap, etc.) poses, such as "What do politicians sold on the idea of limited governance offer to folk who need, and deserve, the government to come to their aid?" "Does George Bush care about black people?" and "Do well-off black people care about poor black people?" With its abundance of buzz-worthy coinages, like "Aframnesia" and "Afristocracy," Dyson's populist style sometimes gets too cute. But his contention that Katrina exposed a dominant culture pervaded not only by "active malice" toward poor blacks but also by a long history of "passive indifference" to their problems is both powerful and unsettling. Through this history of neglect, Dyson suggests, America has broken its social contract with poor blacks who, since Emancipation, have assumed that government will protect all its citizens. Yet when disaster struck the poor, the cavalry arrived four days late.

The Eight Days of Katrina (The advisories and Discussions by the National Weather Service concerning Hurricane Katrina) [UNABRIDGED] by Bryan Ibasfalean (Author), NOAA (Illustrator) (Spiral-bound - 2005)
The Great Deluge : Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast by Douglas Brinkley (Hardcover - May 1, 2006) Historian Brinkley (Tour of Duty, etc.) opens his detailed examination of the awful events that took place on the Gulf Coast late last summer by describing how a New Orleans animal shelter began evacuating its charges at the first notice of the impending storm. The Louisiana SPCA, Brinkley none too coyly points out, was better prepared for Katrina than the city of New Orleans. It's groups like the SPCA, as well as compassionate citizens who used their own resources to help others, whom Brinkley hails as heroes in his heavy, powerful account" and, unsurprisingly, authorities like Mayor Ray Nagin, Gov. Kathleen Blanco and former FEMA director Michael C. Brown whom he lambastes most fiercely. The book covers August 27 through September 3, 2005, and uses multiple narrative threads, an effect that is disorienting but appropriate for a book chronicling the helter-skelter environment of much of New Orleans once the storm had passed, the levees had been breached, and the city was awash in "toxic gumbo." Naturally outraged at the damage wrought by the storm and worsened by the ill-prepared authorities, Brinkley, a New Orleans resident, is generally levelheaded, even when reporting on Brown's shallow e-mails to friends while "the trapped were dying" or recounting heretofore unreported atrocities, such as looters defecating on property as a mark of empowerment.
The Great Deluge CD : Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast by Douglas Brinkley, Brewer Kyf (Narrator) (Audio CD - June 1, 2006)
The Storm : What Went Wrong and Why During Hurricane Katrina--the Inside Story from One Louisiana Scientist by Ivor Van Heerden, Mike Bryan (Hardcover - May 18, 2006) It was a natural disaster—but magnified enormously by government’s crushing incompetence in both preparation and response. The storm leveled the Mississippi Gulf Coast, but man-made problems destroyed New Orleans. The catastrophic flooding there should never have happened. Properly designed and constructed levees would have protected the city. Instead, they collapsed. Never in American history has a natural disaster been magnified so disastrously by the systemic failure of our government to protect and serve the people. The result is the national tragedy known forevermore as simply Katrina.
The Wrath of Hurricane Katrina: One of America's Worst Natural Disasters by Robert D. Shangle (Editor) (Paperback - September 30, 2005)
Through the Eye of the Storm: A Book Dedicated to Rebuilding What Katrina Washed Away by Cholene Espinoza (Paperback - May 2006) Through the Eye of the Storm is a rallying cry for working Americans and an indictment of the public and commercial sources of assistance that have failed them. Espinoza details the seemingly insurmountable red tape, systemic barriers, and inequities in disaster assistance for people who have no means to complain or demand better. Common stereotypes about race, religion, poverty, government assistance, single parenthood—even our notions of charity—are challenged when seen Through the Eye of the Storm . This is a story of loss and recovery, of the ravages of disaster and the healing power of community.
