Risk analysis has generated considerable controversy in recent years as to its meaning with respect to societal decision making. The papers in this book highlight different aspects of the risk debate. In particular, confidence in expert statements on risk has diminished and there has been an increasing recognition of the difference between analysis of the risk associated with an event and people's preferences/values. These concerns are articulated in the papers and discussions contained here. The volume does not provide answers to the dilemma facing society but rather raises a set of questions which need to be considered.
