Description - The Government of Risk by Christopher Hood

'The analytical approach developed to undertake this classification is full of insights. The classification scheme set out in the book will serve anyone involved in practical institutional design well beyond the specific examples it presents.' -Political StudiesWhy are vast sums spent on controlling some risks but not others? Is there any logic to the techniques we use in risk regulation? These are key questions explored in The Government of Risk. This book exposes the components of risk regulation systems and examines their interaction and explanation. The approach employed is of a high policy relevance as well as of considerable theoretical importance.
