Risk is a part of life. How we handle uncertainty and deal with potential threats influence decision making throughout our lives. In "The Risk Society Revisited, " Eugene A. Rosa, Ortwin Renn, and Aaron M. McCright offer the first book to present an integrated theory of risk and governance.The authors examine our sociological understanding of risk and how we reconcile modern human conditions with our handling of risk in our quest for improved quality of life. They build a new framework for understanding risk one that provides an innovative connection between social theory and the governance of technological and environmental risks and the sociopolitical challenges they pose for a sustainable future.Showing how our consciousness affects risk in the decisions we make as individuals and as members of a democratic society "The Risk Society Revisited" makes an important contribution to the literature of risk research."
