The concept of risk is an outgrowth of our societys great concern about coping with the dangers of modern life. The Perception of Risk brings together the work of Paul Slovic, one of the worlds leading analysts of risk, risk perception and risk management, to examine the gap between expert views of risk and public perceptions. Ordered chronologically, it allows the reader to see the evolution of our understanding of such perceptions, from early studies identifying public misconceptions of risk to recent work that recognizes the importance and legitimacy of equity, trust, power and other value-laden issues underlying public concern.
