Abstract

We contend that the leader was often the key actor in determining whether responses to disasters were successful in the pre-industrial societies of Southern Italy and the Azores (Portugal). We examine how leaders emerged and the ways in which they operated in the context of two similar, but in detail, very different societies shaped by a common Catholic ethos.
