Summary

Since the last edition of Principles of Risk Management and Insurance was published, natural disasters, economic crises and, most shockingly, terrorist attacks on American soil have stunned the nation. To say that we live in a risky world and that things have changed in the last two years is an enormous understatement. Featuring a host of revisions designed to keep the text current, the eighth edition discusses the insurance industry's response to recent events in addition to providing broad coverage of the major areas in risk management and insuranceall in a lucid, accessible manner designed for a beginning undergraduate course. Thoroughly updated content includes basic concepts of risk management, legal principles, property and liability insurance, life and health insurance, employee benefits, social insurance, and functional and financial operations of insurers. As in the previous editions, the eighth edition places primary emphasis on issues of interest to the student, with a focus on consumer considerations, coverage of personal risk management and financial planning topics that allow students to apply concepts to their own lives, and discussion of the relevance of recent national events for individuals as well as for the insurance industry.
