Summary
  • "Ulrich Beck's Risk Society established risk on the sociological agenda. It brought together a wide range of issues centring on environmental, health and personal risk. It provided a rallying ground for researchers and activists in a variety of social movements and became a reference point for state and local policies in risk management." "The Risk Society and Beyond charts the progress of Beck's ideas, traces their evolution and demonstrates why the issues raised by Beck reverberate throughout social theory." "Covering new risks that Beck did not foresee, associated with the emergence of new technologies, genetic and cybernetic, The Risk Society and Beyond is unique because it offers the reader both an introduction to the main arguments in Risk Society and develops a range of critical discussions of aspects of this and other works by Beck. This book also includes a reply to his critics from Beck himself."--Jacket
