Uncertainty governs our lives. From the unknowns of investing in the stock market, living with the risks of terrorism, developing policies on genetically-modified foods, or disaster planning for catastrophic climate change, how we conceptualize, evaluate and cope with uncertainty drives our actions and deployment of resources, decisions and priorities. This volume is the most wide-ranging and thorough examination of 'uncertainty.'Theoretical perspectives are drawn from complexity science, economics, futures, history, art history, law, philosophy, physics, psychology, statistics and theology. On a practical level, uncertainty in risk management and practice are examined in emergency management, intelligence, law enforcement, policy, politics and music. Key problems that are a subject of focus are the environment, communicable diseases and illicit drugs. Opening and closing sections of the book build on major conceptual strands in uncertainty thinking and seek to develop an integrated view of the nature of uncertainty, uncertainty as a motivating or de-motivating force, and strategies for coping and managing under uncertainty.
