Import this citation to:

"Editors Howard Kunreuther and Richard J. Roth, Sr., assemble an exposition on the topic that is educational for people who are unfamiliar with natural disaster insurance and thought-provoking for entities concerned with public policy related to natural disasters. ... Each chapter is well-crafted, clearly written, and appropriately documented. Although a different author writes each chapter, there is a smooth transition from one topic to another, making the book very readable. ... Overall, Paying the Price is an educational and useful work. Individuals and groups involved with controlling the frequency and severity of natural disasters, as well as financing the clean-up and restoration, will benefit from reading the book and considering the ideas presented."
--The Journal of Risk and Insurance
