Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk discusses the history of Risk Management. The book goes through the early years of Probability and comes full circle to the present day. It talks about the development of Statistical Sampling and other various techniques used to quantify events.
With the stock market breaking records almost daily, leaving longtime market analysts shaking their heads and revising their forecasts, a study of the concept of risk seems quite timely. Peter Bernstein has written a comprehensive history of man’s efforts to understand risk and probability, beginning with early gamblers in ancient Greece, continuing through the 17th-century French mathematicians Pascal and Fermat and up to modern chaos theory. Along the way he demonstrates that understanding risk underlies everything from game theory to bridge-building to winemaking.
