Description - Smoking by Paul Slovic

Smoking presents important controversial research that is based on a survey of several thousand young persons and adults, probing: * attitudes * beliefs * feelings * perceptions of risk associated with smoking The expert board of contributors point out that young smokers give little or not thought to health risks or the problems of addiction. The survey data contradicts the model of informed, rational choice and underscores the need for aggressive policies to counter tobacco firms' marketing and promotional efforts and to restrict youth access to tobacco.

Author Biography - Paul Slovic

Dr. Slovic studies judgment and decision processes with an emphasis on decision making under conditions of risk. His work examines fundamental issues such as the influence of affect on judgments and decisions. He also studies the factors that underlie perceptions of risk and attempts to assess the importance of these perceptions for the management of risk in society. His most recent research examines psychological factors contributing to apathy toward genocide. He no longer does classroom teaching but does advise students in their research.
