The Ap­peal of In­sur­ance

Insurance - - RECOMMENDED RESOURCES - Edited by Ge­of­frey Clark, Gre­gory An­der­son, Chris­tian Thomann and J.Matthias Graf Von Der Schu­len­burg

This book traces the ways in which in­sur­ance, over the past three cen­turies, has grown in con­cert with a clien­tele largely of its own mak­ing. Draw­ing on the fields of his­tory, so­ci­ol­ogy, crim­i­nol­ogy and eco­nom­ics, these es­says break new ground in in­sur­ance stud­ies by il­lu­mi­nat­ing the di­alec­ti­cal re­la­tion­ship be­tween the ex­pan­sion of the in­sur­ance busi­ness and the pub­lic de­mand for eco­nomic and so­cial se­cu­rity.
