Policing the risk society by Richard Victor Ericson( Book )

23 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this provocative new book, Richard Ericson and Kevin Haggerty contend that the police have become information brokers to institutions such as insurance companies and health and welfare organizations that operate based on a knowledge of risk. In turn, these institutions influence the ways that police officers think and act. A critical review of existing research reveals the need to study police interaction with institutions as well as individuals. These institutions are part of an emerging "risk society" where knowledge of risk is used to control danger. The authors examine different aspects of police involvement; the use of surveillance technologies and the collection of data on securities, careers and different social, ethnic, age and gender groups. They conclude by looking at how police organizations have been forced to develop new communications rules and technologies to meet external demands for knowledge of risk. This is the first book in this field to include detailed evidence of some of the central tenets of the risk society. It also includes a sophisticated examination of the risk society theory that will advance readers' knowledge considerably

Insurance as governance by Richard Victor Ericson( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insurance as Governance is the first major sociological study of the insurance industry. It examines how the industry controls our institutions and daily lives in ways that are largely invisible, and how it thereby functions as a form of government beyond the state. Drawing on extensive ethnographic research on industry practices, the work penetrates the complexities of the insurance industry and demonstrates why it is such a powerful and pervasive institution. The authors advance the concept of moral risk as they consider how insurance companies partner with governments and corporations in the negotiation of economic policy. In effect, Insurance as Governance documents liberal theory at work. It offers a major case study of liberal governance beyond the state and explores such larger issues as how insurance is increasingly liberal rather than welfarist in orientation, and how insurance is the vanguard of liberalization in governance throughout postindustrial societies. Wide-ranging in scope and original in approach, the text provides a sophisticated integration of empirical data and theoretical approaches relating to insurance, risk, governance, and security
Uncertain business : risk, insurance and the limits of knowledge by Richard Victor Ericson( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Uncertain Business explores insurance industry practices and what they tell us about risks and uncertainties in contemporary society. The core of the book is a set of unique ethnographic studies of the insurance industry. Addressing four fields of insurance - life, disability, earthquake, and terrorism, - these studies reveal that a high degree of uncertainty pervades the insurance business, the very industry that is charged with transforming uncertainty into manageable risk. The authors show how scientific data on risk are often absent, inadequate, controversial, contradictory, or ignored, and how insurers often impose meaning on uncertainty through non-scientific forms of knowledge that are intuitive, emotional, aesthetic, moral, and speculative. Furthermore, the nature of uncertainty and the response to it varies substantially across the areas studied, showing how contemporary society is characterized by competing interests and forms of logic in regard to risk."--Résumé de l'éditeur
