The Principles and Practice of Crisis Management

This book examines the factors involved in the social mediation of risks, the social construction of reality, and attempts made by professionals to re-design how social reality appears. It looks at single-issue politics affecting the political agenda, the role of the mass media, how corporations can and do respond, in very sophisticated ways, to threats to their political and ideological perspectives, and so advance their interests. The study also comments on how professional fields are created, demonstrating the work that goes into proposing, sustaining and promoting the expertise of crisis management.

MEENA AHMED obtained her PhD at the London School of Economics, University of London, UK, in 2005. She holds a MSc in Criminology (LSE) and a BA in Sociology (University of Reading). Originally from the Maldives, she now lives in London.


'Ahmed offers a clear example of how the actions of highly sophisticated and reflexive actors - PR consultants, the media, corporate strategists, and high-profile campaign organizations - engaged in public controversies can be examined with the right balance of empathy and analytical distance.' - Dr Javier Lezaun, Centre for Analysis Risk and Regulation, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK 'This is a confident piece of work...Ahmed marshals a great range of interview and media content data to produce a complex, interesting and plausible account of events...I am unaware of a similar study, which moves across various registers; it is an original piece of work for which she should be congratulated' - Professor John Urry, Lancaster University, UK
