Edited and contributed to by a collection of eminent international scholars in the field, this is the first book to explore the gendered aspects of risk.

It analyzes what is currently known and identifies some of the new directions and challenges for research and theory that emerge from thinking of risk as a governmental technique; as a form of consciousness and action and as a political issue, shaped by, and shaping gender in contemporary society.
