Public Discourses of Risk, Health and Science
This chapter explores in more detail the importance of discourse (in the sociocultural sense) in the construction of contemporary risk. It continues the focus, introduced in the previous chapter, on the idea of public communication, which entails some attention to the role of the mass media in the representation of risk in general and to the particular health risks which have been examined in the present research.
