The impact of technological change, globalization, information and communication technologies and international governmental intervention has radically altered supply chain strategies, operations and risk profiles for most organizations. The challenge facing business and researchers alike is how best to address risk management in this new context. This collection, written by international scholars from the UK, US and Scandinavia, addresses this need by providing the first topical review of these developments and the latest research findings. The findings represent a robust cross-disciplinary view of supply chains, articulating policies and strategies for organizations. The research studies are based on empirical case studies within services and manufacturing in both large and SME organizations. This work is intended to provide the foundation for future research in this expanding area and the impact it has on managing risk within the supply chain.

'Paradoxically the search for efficiency in modern supply chains has often made them more vulnerable to disruption. Supply chain risk is a growing concern to managers and policy-makers alike. This ground-breaking book provides a comprehensive insight into the nature of supply chain risk and offers guidance as to how it can be managed and mitigated.' Professor Martin Christopher, Director, Centre for Logistics & Supply Chain Management, Cranfield University, UK 'There are few books available at the moment that gather together current research related to supply chain risk. This book is among the first to describe and evaluate this important academic field. It is a long overdue text written by those who have a keen understanding of this complex phenomena...A sound addition to the supply chain researcher's book collection, and one that will provide a platform for further enquiry.' Marc Day, Henley Management College, UK
