Risk / Edition 1

We are now living in a 'risk' society: risk analysis, risk assessment and risk management are ever-expanding industries.
In this lively and engaging introduction to one of todays major sociocultural concepts, Deborah Lupton examines why risk has come to such prominence at this particular point in history. She traces how risk has been constructed over time from pre-modernity to the modern era and provides an introduction to the main theories surrounding the subject.^l Including examples of the ways in which risk is experienced in everyday life, Lupton covers a wide range of issues including:
* risk and culture
* sociocultural and scientific perspectives
* blame, danger and trust
* risk and pleasure.
