About the Author

Iain Wilkinson is a Senior Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Kent, UK. His publications include Anxiety in a Risk Society (2001) and Suffering: A Sociological Introduction (2004).


'The modern world is a risky world, whether crossing the street or taking a bath, and people forget the risks in their world at their peril. They should recognize that risk surrounds them and learn how to deal with it. Wilkinson issues a call for both contemplation and action, and sociologists should take note of both. Summing Up: Recommended.' -- Choice, June 2010
