Description: For all the benefits of modern technology, there is often great public suspicion of, and aversion to, innovations. Amplified by the huge power of the media, public concern about health and ecological risks can grow into what is now recognized as a new and very significant social phenomenon, the stigmatization of new developments. The economic impact and social consequences can be enormous.

This volume presents the current and most comprehensive examination of how and why stigmatization occurs and what the appropriate responses to it are. Stigma can attach to places, such as transport routes for nuclear waste; to products, such as contaminated food; and to technologies or even whole industries. More theoretical contributions look at the parts played by government and business, and the crucial role of the media in forming public attitudes. Stigma is not always misplaced, and the volume discusses the challenges involved in managing it, and reducing the vulnerability of important products, industries and institutions while providing the public with the information they need about risks.
