    Recent years have witnessed destructive earthquakes in Haiti, Japan and New Zealand, and history is littered with accounts of similarly devastating events that have destroyed cities and killed millions of people. This study examines two millennia of major earthquakes and their effects on societies around the world; the ways in which cultures have mythologized them through religion, the arts and popular culture; and the science of measuring, understanding and trying to predict them.
