Shouldering Risks:
The Culture of Control in the Nuclear Power Industry
Constance Perin

Book Description | Table of Contents
Preface [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This work, based on extraordinarily rich materials from sustained fieldwork, is a worthy successor to Charles Perrow's pathbreaking Normal Accidents and is without doubt a signal contribution to the burgeoning interest in 'risk society.' But for me, its special significance is in its innovations in the marshalling of what now counts as ethnographic analysis and evidence, for which models are badly needed. In short, this a work that I can teach with."--George E. Marcus, Chancellor's Professor of Anthropology, University of California, Irvine, and coauthor, Anthropology as Cultural Critique

"A profoundly important work on the culture of safety."--Alfred Marcus, Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota
