Fundamentals of Risk and Insurance

Buy
This tenth edition of Fundamentals of Risk and Insurance marks the 36th anniversary of the first edition, published in 1972. Over the years, the book has undergone major change as the field of risk management and insurance has changed. Emmett J. Vaughan, an author in the first and all subsequent editions, guided the revisions over the years to maintain the text’s primary focus—that of a consumeroriented text. He was passionate about the field of risk and insurance, and his passion was reflected in the book through the decades. Professor Vaughan saw risk and insurance implications everywhere, from personal life events to the changing world around him to the fairy tales he read to his children (with commentary). His enthusiasm for the field was infectious and influenced many students to pursue careers in risk and insurance. I was fortunate to have him as a teacher, advisor, role model, and father.

Professor Vaughan died in October 2004, just as we were beginning to discuss the tenth edition of the book. This text had been a proud accomplishment of his for over 30 years, and it is with some apprehension that I have completed this revision without his guidance. At its heart, of course, this is his book. While I have updated it to reflect recent developments and tried (mostly without success) to shorten it in parts, the bulk of the text reflects his thoughts over his forty-plus year career. I hope that I have been able to capture some of the enthusiasm with which he approached the field.
