DESCRIPTION

A new edition of the standard insurance text, revised to reflect changes that have occurred in the insurance industry and its environment since 1986. Incorporates changes wrought by the Risk Retention Act of 1986, the Tax Reform Act of 1986, the Revenue Act of 1987, and the Medicare Expansion Act of 1988. Covers legal changes, revisions in policy forms, and the introduction of new forms of insurance. As in previous editions, emphasis is on the insurance product and its use within a risk-management framework. The three sections cover the concept of risk, the nature of the insurance device, and the principles of risk management. Specific contracts are examined in detail in order to illustrate insurance principles in action. An appendix contains specimen copies of most major types of policies.
