This is the seventh edition of a book long acclaimed by educators, students, and professional insurance people as an excellent source for definitions of insurance terms. The brief, succinct entries explain the meaning of words and phrases concerned with all fields of insurance-life, health, property, liability, marine, pension, surety, social, real estate, and municipal and federal regulating agencies. The more commonly used abbreviations, together with their meanings, are located at the beginning of each alphabetically ordered section. This revised edition has been expanded to include six hundred new terms in all fields, but principally in real estate insurance. It also contains a newly updated section of separate directories which gives the addresses of state insurance commissioners and organizations related to the insurance industry.
Lewis Davids is a Professor Emeritus of Southern Illinois University and the author of a number of books including Money and Banking, and Dictionary of Banking and Finance.
