From the Publisher:

Focusing on problem solving -- from the managerial, consumer and societal standpoints -- this insurance primer emphasizes both the business managerial aspects of risk management and insurance and the numerous consumer applications of the risk management concept and insurance transaction.

From the Back Cover:

Focusing on problem-solving, this book emphasizes the business aspects of risk management as well as consumer applications of risk management and insurance. With an analysis of many current problems facing the insurance industry this book is both relevant and immediate. The sixth edition of Introduction to Risk Management and Insurance has been revised to include coverage of International Risk Management (and a new case study); Employment Practices Liability (with case studies on sexual harassment and the Americans with Disabilities Act); the Emergence of Private Insurance in former Communist countries; and the problems facing Social Security. A reorganization moves consumer insurance coverage forward with commercial insurance toward the rear. The book also includes an appendix on Ethics and Insurance Sales.
