From the early 1990s onwards writers like Ulrich Beck and Anthony Giddens, among many others, have brought home to English-speaking audiences the new conditions of trust, risk and uncertainty faced by everyone living in the contemporary world. Writers like Zygmunt Bauman have emphasized the inevitability, and the difficulties, dilemmas and resistances to, living with doubt, ambivalence and uncertainty. More recently, thinkers such as Robert Putnam have expanded the debate to link trust and social capital. Where much of the work within these crucial debates in the social sciences has been theory-based and theory-driven, Trust, Risk and Uncertainty combines theoretical sophistication with empirical analysis and research in the fields of philosophy, education, social policy, government, health and social care, sociology, and media and cultural studies.The book is aimed at graduates, specialist researchers and undergraduates in the social sciences.
