Description: For decades, both policymakers and analysts have been frustrated by sharp and stubborn conflicts between expert and lay perceptions of environmental risk. Carefully examining the role of intuition, mental habits, and cognitive frameworks in the construction of public opinion, this compelling and controversial account moves beyond previous efforts by risk analysts to bridge the expert/lay impasse that has plagued environmental policy. At the same time, it represents a major contribution to our understanding of how the mind works and how those workings affect public policy.

"Dealing with Risk tackles a fascinating subject. Why do experts find some risks negligible, such as those from nuclear waste, while the public finds them unacceptable -- and vice versa, as was the case, for example, with seat belts?" -- New Scientist
