The following statement: is the end product of a long process of task force meetings, field testing, and reworking of analytical ideas against concrete examples of social phenomena. The overall formulation shows some relationship to “systems theory" but no attempt has been m d e to develop a tightly knit relationship. Rather what we use here are particular perspectives which we think throw some light on the notion of community disruption and response coordination at times of disaster. Part of the purpose of this report is to underline what has been omitted as well as what has been used, and more importantly why they have either been accepted or rejected in the development of our approach to the problem.
