Summary
"This book by one of Europe's leading social and political theorists draws together key essays which argue that a new frame of reference is needed to understand the world risk society in which we live today. Beck focuses on ecological and technological questions of risk, and their sociological and political implications. In doing so, he discusses and answers some of the criticisms provoked by his earlier and much cited work on risk society." "This book is an important text for students and scholars in sociology and politics. It will also be read by a broader audience interested in the key social and political questions of our time."--Jacket
