Summary "Experts from both sides of the Atlantic explore the importance for trust of various influences, from individual perceptions to organizational systems, and consider the conditions involved in building or undermining trust. Several authors examine practical hazard management issues, including medical vaccination programmes and popular participation in pollution control and waste management as strategies for enhancing social trust." "This book provides insightful analyses for researchers and students of environmental and social sciences and is essential reading for those engaged in risk management in both the public and private sectors."--BOOK JACKET
