"This encyclopedia will definitely contribute positively to an opening up of the field of risk management beyond the constrained boundaries of specific disciplines." (Journal of the American Statistical Association, September 2009) "An excellent source for professionals in the field, this is really more a handbook than an encyclopedia. The material presented is of high quality. ... Many of the articles are easily understandable by a layperson. This work will be a valuable addition for all collections emphasizing mathematical statistics and for most large academic and public libraries. Recommended." (Choice, February 2009)
