Anticipating risks has become an obsession of the early twenty-first century. Private and public sector organisations increasingly devote resources to risk prevention and contingency planning to manage risk events should they occur. This 2010 book shows how we can organise our social, organisational and regulatory policy systems to cope better with the array of local and transnational risks we regularly encounter. Contributors from a range of disciplines - including finance, history, law, management, political science, social psychology, sociology and disaster studies - consider threats, vulnerabilities and insecurities alongside social and organisational sources of resilience and security. These issues are introduced and discussed through a fascinating and diverse set of topics, including myxomatosis, the 2012 Olympic Games, gene therapy and the financial crisis. This is an important book for academics and policy makers who wish to understand the dilemmas generated in the anticipation and management of risks.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: 'The semantics of risk is suddenly everywhere. More than ever there is an urgent need for clarification, professional engagement and sensitivity for the multi-faceted nature of the dilemmas surrounding risk regulation. This is exactly what Anticipating Risks and Organising Risk Regulation offers the reader. I learnt a lot.' Ulrich Beck, Ludwig-Maximilian University, Munich and London School of Economics and Political Science
Review of the hardback: 'This book, edited by one of the leading scholars of risk and regulation, moves us forward from the retrospective analysis of things gone wrong to anticipate new risks in a global world. The compelling examples of risk regulation and the complexity of regulatory effects are a crucial reality check for theorists, researchers, and regulators alike.' Diane Vaughan, Columbia University
