9781412940702: Risk Balance and Security

In confronting risk, individuals and all agencies cannot simply respond with endless resources in mitigating the damage that hazards engender―they have to establish a balance. Risk Balance and Security combines the conceptual underpinnings of risk assessment and management at both the individual and agency level with a clear analysis of how these relate to challenges faced in responding to crime, terrorism, public health threats, and environmental disasters. With a new understanding of how decisions are made about threats and hazards, and how this understanding may be applied in our preparedness, prevention, and response strategies, we will be able to better conceptualize our task for enhancing security in the future.

About the Author:

Erin Gibbs Van Brunschot is an Associate Professor of Sociology and Associate Dean of Social Sciences at the University of Calgary, Canada. She received her BA and MA in Sociology from the University of Calgary, and her PhD from the University of Alberta. Her research focuses on the concept of risk as it primarily applies to criminal offending and victimization. Her current research projects include an examination of how past experiences with various types of hazards influence self-protective behavior and expectations for the future, and the means by which individual and institutional efforts to enhance security work together and/or at cross-purposes. She has published articles in such journals as the International Journal of Law and Psychiatry, Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology, Alberta Journal of Educational Research, Women and Criminal Justice, British Journal of Criminology and has made major contributions in books such as Juvenile Delinquency by Creechan and Silverman; Crime in Canadian Society 6th edition by Silverman, Teevan, and Sacco; The Process and Structure of Crime by Meier, Kennedy, and Sacco; and the Encyclopedia of Crime and Punishment by Levinson.

Leslie W. Kennedy is currently University Professor at Rutgers University School of Criminal Justice (SCJ) and Director of the Rutgers Center on Public Security. He was the Dean of SCJ from 1998 to 2007.  In his most recent research, he has focused on crime mapping and the development of risk terrain modeling for use by police in preventing crime.  In addition to publishing numerous books on risk and crime, his research has appeared in Criminology, Justice Quarterly, American Journal of Public Health, and the Journal of Quantitative Criminology.
