Outdoor Recreation Insurance, Risk Management, and Law

James H. Moss

As the field of outdoor recreation continues to grow, risk and risk management continue to take on a greater level of importance. Smart organizations see changes coming and evolve and adapt with new strategies for managing risk. In the late 1980s, the outdoor recreation industry moved into the litigation phase and the number of court cases grew exponentially. It is unlikely that litigation and the importance of risk management will be moving out of this field in the 21st century. Outdoor Recreation Insurance, Risk Management, and Law was developed to help train and educate students and professionals in the field. The author, James H. Moss, is the leading expert in the field of outdoor recreation, insurance, risk management, and the law.
