Description Beyond the Risk Society de Gus Mythen:

In contemporary culture risk is ubiquitous, filtering through a range of activities, practices and experiences. In line with rising public concerns about the management of current threats - such as crime, terrorism and global warming - interest in risk has gathered momentum in the social sciences, galvanized by Ulrich Beck's risk society thesis. Bringing together cutting edge academics and researchers, "Beyond the Risk Society" provides an understanding of the relevance and impact of the concept of risk in various subject areas. Contributions by domain experts critically evaluate the way in which theoretical risk perspectives have influenced their fields of interest, offering the opportunity to reflect upon the problems and possibilities for future work on risk. In assembling this collection, the editors propose a holistic and trans-disciplinary approach to understanding the nature and consequences of risk in everyday life. This text is key reading for social sciences students in a range of disciplines, including sociology, criminology, cultural studies, media studies, psychology and social policy. The contributors include: Alison Anderson, Rob Flynn, Jane Franklin, Hazel Kemshall, Deborah Lupton, Phil Macnaghten, Jim McGuigan, Peter McMylor, Gabe Mythen, Pat O'Malley, Teela Sanders, Steve Tombs, Sandra Walklate, Dave Whyte, and Iain Wilkinson. Sandra Walklate is currently Eleanor Rathbone Chair of Sociology at the University of Liverpool having held previous posts at Manchester Metropolitan University, Keele, Salford and Liverpool John Moores. Her current publications include Imagining the Victim of Crime (2007) Open University Press/MacGraw-Hill and an edited collection with Gabe Mythen entitled Beyond the Risk Society: Critical Reflections on Risk and Human Security (2006) also with the Open University Press/MacGraw-Hill. She is currently compiling The Handbook of Victims and Victimology for Willan Publishing.
