520    Cross-Cultural Risk Perception demonstrates the richness 
       and wealth of theoretical insights and practical 
       information that risk perception studies can offer to 
       policy makers, risk experts, and interested parties. The 
       book begins with an extended introduction summarizing the 
       state of the art in risk perception research and core 
       issues of cross-cultural comparisons. The main body of the
       book consists of four cross-cultural studies on public 
       attitudes towards risk in different countries, including 
       the United States, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany,
       Sweden, Bulgaria, Romania, Japan, and China. The last 
       chapter critically discusses the main findings from these 
       studies and proposes a framework for understanding and 
       investigating cross-cultural risk perception. Finally, 
       implications for communication, regulation and management 
       are outlined.
