Abstract

This essay reviews four of the central themes in Emily Chamily-Wright’s The Cultural and Political Economy of Recovery. These themes include: (1) the cultural toolkit, (2) the use of qualitative methods in social science research, (3) polycentricism and disaster recovery, and (4) entrepreneurship in non-priced environments. Our purpose is twofold. First, to make clear Chamlee-Wright’s contributions to our understanding of disaster recovery. Second, to demonstrate how these themes provide an opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange by blending insights from across the social sciences.

Keywords: Cultural Toolkit, Disaster Recovery, Polycentricism, Quantitative Methods
