In the 1970's, the research agenda in insurance was dominatedby optimal insurance coverage, security design, and equilibrium underconditions of imperfect information. The 1980's saw a growth oftheoretical developments including non-expected utility, pricevolatility, retention capacity, the pricing and design of insurancecontracts in the presence of multiple risks, and the liabilityinsurance crisis. The empirical study of information problems, financial derivatives, and large losses due to catastrophic eventsdominated the research agenda in the 1990's.The "Handbook of Insurance" provides a single reference source oninsurance for professors, researchers, graduate students, regulators, consultants, and practitioners, that reviews the research developmentsin insurance and its related fields that have occurred over the lastthirty years. The book starts with the history and foundations ofinsurance theory and moves on to review asymmetric information, riskmanagement and insurance pricing, and the industrial organization ofinsurance markets. The book ends with life insurance, pensions, andeconomic security.Each chapter has been written by a leading authority in insurance, allcontributions have been peer reviewed, and each chapter can be readindependently of the others.
