Summary Recent events like the BSE and GM food crises, and the Concorde crash in July 2000, have illustrated that large private and public sector organisations are vulnerable and can suffer from major disruption to their business. Awareness of the need to develop expertise in risk management has grown and as a result new programs of research and teaching in risk and crisis management are being developed at universities. The contributions to this volume have been selected by adopting a multi-disciplinary approach to risk, and by considering the implications for management, business and society. The contributions are written by recognized experts in their fields and represent a unique collection of papers on the topic. Audience: The book will be of benefit to scientists, managers, politicians and trainers in academia, business and industry involved in risk analysis, assessment and management, regulation and deregulation of risk, crisis management and accidents and disasters.
