From nuclear power to food safety, scientific experts and members of the lay public differ sharply on the assessment of risk. Is there any way to bridge the divide between these competing epistemologies? In recent years social theorists have begun to turn their attention to this perplexing issue and to examine what risk controversies might be able to tell us about the current phase of modernity. This volume consists of contributions by leading environmental sociologists who explore how sociological insights can help inform environmental decision-making.
