Understanding Risk: Learning from History is a collaboration between the Centre for Financial History and the Centre for Risk Studies to explore financial risk through historical research and develop authoritative historical perspectives on financial crises.

The Palgrave Studies in the History of Finance series is edited by Adrian R. Bell, University of Reading; D’Maris Coffman, University of Cambridge; and Tony K. Moore, University of Reading.
