This book forges a social psychological framework for understanding the human response to risks ranging from nuclear wars to industrial accidents, from earthquakes to epidemics. Its key concern is to highlight and to explain the widespread sense of personal invulnerability to danger. The social scientific study of people's responses to risk tends to focus on either their narrow cognitive or their broad socio-cultural roots. The approach in this book slots into the gap between these poles. It elucidates how individuals, steeped in various societies, cultures and groups, make sense of impending crises. Since the response to risk is essentially a response to a menacing, threatening event, emotional factors form a key component of this response. Interestingly, such factors are severely underrepresented in this area since it has been overattentive to the cognitive processing of risk.

Book Description:

From earthquakes to epidemics, AIDS to war, the mass media bring into our lives the awareness of risk. But how do people respond to this increased awareness? Using a social psychological framework, this book attempts to expla in how, within a given social and cultural context, individuals make sense of impending crisis. In particular it explores the phenomenon of a widespread sense of personal invulnerability when faced with risk: the 'not me' factor. This book will appeal to an international audience of post-graduates, academics and researchers in the social sciences.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. From earthquakes to epidemics, AIDS to industrial accidents, the mass media continually bring into our daily lives the awareness of risk. But how do people respond to this increased awareness? How do people cope with living in what has been termed the risk society ? This book attempts to explain how, within a given social and cultural context, individuals make sense of impending crisis. In particular it tries to explain the phenomenon of a widespread sense of personal invulnerability when faced with risk: the not me factor. Using a social psychological framework it highlights emotional factors which are a key component of responses to risk but have hitherto been neglected due to the tendency of much work on risk to concentrate almost exclusively on cognitive processing. This book will appeal to an international audience of post-graduates, academics and researchers in the areas of risk, psychology, sociology, medical anthropology and psychoanalytic studies.
