Plot :

With risk analysis, risk assessment and risk management as ever-expanding industries, we are now living in a "risk" society. In this book, 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 later modern era and provides an introduction to the main theories surrounding the subject.Risk covers a wide range of issues, including: risk and culture; sociocultural and scientific perspectives; blame, danger and trust; and risk and pleasure. Including examples of the ways in which risk is experienced in everyday life, this book provides a lively and engaging introduction to one of today's major sociocultural concepts.
