Essentially a hardcover reprint of the March/May 2003 Journal of Risk and Uncertainty focusing on the risks of terrorism, Viscusi, a Professor of Law and Economics at Harvard Law School, culls 7 works of 14 professors, risk managers and insurers to create this volume. Upon first pass one immediately realizes that the works in Viscusi et al The Risks of Terrorism are anchored in the fields of risk, probability, terrorism and insurance, and focus on three primary areas of concern; risk beliefs, insurance market effects and policy responses. While a valuable contribution to these fields, given the sophisticated theoretical tones throughout, practitioners in the fields of homeland security and emergency management may find it difficult to put the information offered to use in their everyday functions. The book is best suited for academics and researchers that will conduct future studies in these fields.
