An Epic Tale of Triumph Over Adversity

About the Book


Tsunami Chronicles is Bill Nicol's most ambitious book. Comprised of six interrelated books, it tells the inside story of how Indonesia and the international community rebuilt Indonesia's westernmost province, Aceh, after the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. Few natural disasters come bigger in scale or impact. It stole the lives of a quarter million people from 60 countries. A powerful, first-hand narrative from a key insider, Tsunami Chronicles offers rare and refreshing insights into the global politics of disaster recovery.
