Review:

"This encyclopedia will definitely contribute positively to anopening up of the field of risk management beyond the constrainedboundaries of specific disciplines." (Journal of the AmericanStatistical Association, September 2009)

"An excellent source for professionals in the field, this isreally more a handbook than an encyclopedia. The material presentedis of high quality. ... Many of the articles are easilyunderstandable by a layperson. This work will be a valuableaddition for all collections emphasizing mathematical statisticsand for most large academic and public libraries. Recommended."(Choice, February 2009)
