This is a risky book. It is published at a time when public interest in public health issues is probably greater than at any time before. The book is risky because it is honest: honest about the state of knowledge about risk and risk communication across a wide range of public health issues, and honest about the state of relationships between science, the public and those public institutions responsible for regulating risk. Risk Communication and Public Health should be required reading for policy makers and professionals responsible for public health... campaigners, academics and students will also find it of value. An edited collection with crisp analysis of the issues. * Posted on Amazon.co.uk *
This book is packed with information. It has been well constructed by the editors and brings together a wide variety of perspectives from a very impressive list of authors... it is highly readable, densely packed and valuable source of reference and learning... It comes highly recommended as an addition to the bookshelf for all public health practitioners. * Teri Knight, Health Services Management Centre in the Royal Society of Medicine 15, 67-70 *
