Laurent Magne, Society and Business Review Power's book is illuminating and bringing in the foreground a highly relevant topic for today businesses and society. As a preliminary exploration of the ideas embodied by risk management understood as risk governance, the book is really worth reading even if we will be missing the flavor of field studies, because Power's aim was so broad and ideational. Anyway, this book may help debunk many ideas about risk and risk management, written by a talented management
accountant and philosopher.

getAbsract ...getAbstract recommends this informed and informative analysis to risk management professionals and professors who will appreciate Powers depth of knowledge.
