Am 5. August 1949 setzt ein Flugzeug über den rauhen Bergen von Montana 15 Fallschirmspringer des Forstdienstes ab. Ihre Aufgabe: die Bekämpfung eines zunächst ungefährlich eingestuften Waldbrandes in einer unwegsamen Schlucht. »Smokejumpers« waren die jungen Männer dieser Mannschaft, Feuerspringer, und die meisten von ihnen erstickten, verbrannten oder erlagen ihren schweren Brandwunden. Nur zwei entkamen dem Inferno und überlebten die Katastrophe. Mehr als ein Vierteljahrhundert später greift Norman Maclean die ungeschriebene Geschichte dieses Feuers auf und entdeckt darin alle Elemente einer klassischen Tragödie. (Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine frühere Ausgabe.)

In this rugged account of a rugged profession, Matthew Desmond explores the heart and soul of the wildland firefighter. Having joined a firecrew in Northern Arizona as a young man, Desmond relates his experiences with intimate knowledge and native ease, adroitly balancing emotion with analysis and action with insight. On the Fireline shows that these firefighters aren’t the adrenaline junkies or romantic heroes as they’re so often portrayed. An immersion into a dangerous world, On the Fireline is also a sophisticated analysis of a high-risk profession—and a captivating read. “Gripping . . . a masterful account of how young men are able to face down wildfire, and why they volunteer for such an enterprise in the first place.”—David Grazian, Sociological Forum “Along with the risks and sorrow, Desmond also presents the humor and comaraderie of ordinary men performing extraordinary tasks. . . . A good complement to Norman Maclean's Young Men and Fire. Recommended.”—Library Journal

Für Johan Goudsblom brachte die Entdeckung des Feuers und seiner Kontrolle in der Vorgeschichte eine radikale Umstellung der menschlichen Kultur. Dieser ersten grundlegenden ökologischen Wende folgten mit dem Ackerbau und der industriellen Revolution weitere Entwicklungsphasen im Umgang mit Feuer und deshalb mit der materiellen Umwelt und der ganzen Gesellschaft. Bis in unsere Tage ist die Kontrolle des Feuers ein integraler Bestandteil der Gesellschaften, die Menschen miteinander bilden. Die erste Auflage erschien 1995 beim Suhrkamp Verlag.

Although municipal firefighters respond on a daily basis to industrial fires or emergencies, even the largest fire departments often focus most of their training and attention to structural or wildland firefighting. It is increasingly probable that municipal firefighters will be called to an industrial incident due to a fire or terrorist event. The authors have written this book to specifically prepare the municipal firefighter for responses to a wide range of industrial fires, where the situation will be monumentally different. ""Industrial Firefighting for Municipal Firefighters"" is an ideal resource for municipal firefighters who may respond to an industrial incident, personnel at industrial facilities that have in-house, first-response capability, and larger industrial fire departments.
