An Anniversary Collection volume
"One of the classic books on Insurance is Allan H. Willett's The Economic Theory of Risk and Insurance. . . . This has long been a scarce item, in fact, impossible to buy, although every student of Insurance knows that it was the first and still remains the best discussion of the economic principles of Insurance."—Robert Riegel, Professor of Statistics and Insurance, University of BuffaloThis book is a volume in the Penn Press Anniversary Collection. To mark its 125th anniversary in 2015, the University of Pennsylvania Press rereleased more than 1,100 titles from Penn Press's distinguished backlist from 1899-1999 that had fallen out of print. Spanning an entire century, the Anniversary Collection offers peer-reviewed scholarship in a wide range of subject areas.
Allan H. Willett was a member of the faculty of Carnegie Mellon University.
