Summary

For many years, introductory insurance textbooks presented insurance as a subject based in contracts. Slowly, the course has moved toward a consumer orientation, providing students with a broad, descriptive survey of the insurance field, covering topics such as legal aspects, life and health, and property and liability. Over the past 10 years, textbooks began to promote, and to a limited degree, incorporate a stronger business risk management component while maintaining a consumer orientation. Harrington/Niehaus' Risk Management and Insurance 2e is written to take the next step offering the essential aspects of insurance contracts and the insurance industry while providing a substantially more conceptual analysis and attention to business risk management and public policy issues that exists in current texts.

New to This Edition

  • The table of contents has been reorganized to be more applicable for an introductory course while retaining the risk management framework that makes this book unique in the market.
  • Expanded topics include: basics of risk management; types of risk facing businesses, individuals, and the public sector; costs of risk; risk identification and measurement; and loss control.
  • Updated Real-World boxes that include articles from journals and the business press to illustrate the concepts presented in the chapters.

Features

  • Provide students with a conceptual framework for a) making risk management and insurance decisions to increase business value and individual welfare, b) understanding insurance contracts and institutional features of the insurance industry, and c) understanding the effects of and rationale for public policies that affect risk and its allocation.
  • Provide students with broad knowledge of business risk management and public policy issues, with less emphasis on personal insurance contracts and issues, in order to better prepare students for their future roles as managers and citizens.
  • Acquaint students with the essential details of insurance contracts and insurance markets without providing extensive descriptions of numerous types of insurance contracts, emphasizing questions of "how" and "why" insurance contracts are designed and used and insurance markets function.
  • Enhance the ability of students to think analyticaly and critically and to solve problems in order to better prepare them to confront the myriad of opportunities and problems that confront managers in the real world.
  • Pedagogy: Chapter Objectives, Key Terms, Technical Concepts boxes to explain more advanced material, Real-World boxes that include articles from journals and the business press to illustrate the concepts presented in the chapters, Concept Questions at the end of sections in each chapter, emphasizing critical thought, Figures/Tables, Summary, End-of-chapter Questions and Problems, emphasizing critical thought.
