From the Publisher'The authors advance our understanding of risk analysis by digging deeper into notions of vulnerability, issue framing, and tradeoff decisionmaking about the benefits of risk reduction. This book will have important policy and budgetary implications for how we approach wildfire risk response.'
Sam Burns, Fort Lewis College
