Editorial Reviews

Review

"highly intelligent and stimulating." - Times Literary Supplement

Book Description

This is a book about the complex relationship between fear, danger, and the law. Cass Sunstein looks afresh at the precautionary principle, and argues that in its strongest forms the precautionary principle is both incoherent and potentially paralysing, as risks exist on all sides of social situations, and that there is no 'general' precautionary principle as such. This is a very important insight for the contemporary world, and The Laws of Fear represents a major statement from one the most influential political and legal theorists writing today.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not a lawyer found the writing somewhat turgid and slow; on the other hand our decision making and valuation of life and risk is certainly not epistimic. Read just before the Black Swan which discusses risk from a different angle. For those involoved in lives with risks this is interesting reading
