Autorenporträt
Ulrich Beck wurde 1944 in Stolp in Hinterpommern geboren. Nach seinem Studium der Soziologie, Philosophie, Psychologie und Politikwissenschaft in München promovierte er dort im Jahr 1972. Sieben Jahre später wurde er im Fach Soziologie habilitiert. Sein wissenschaftliches Hauptinteresse galt dem Grundlagenwandel moderner Gesellschaften, insbesondere im Zeichen der Globalisierung. Er beschäftigte sich mit den daraus erwachsenden theoretischen, empirischen und methodologischen Fragen sowie den Konsequenzen und Risiken, die dieser Wandel für Wirtschaft, Politik, Kultur und Massenmedien nach sich zieht.
Seit 1980 war Ulrich Beck Herausgeber der Zeitschrift "Soziale Welt". Ihm wurden mehrere Ehrendoktorwürden europäischer Universitäten und zahlreiche Preise verliehen. Ulrich Beck verstarb im Januar 2015.

Rezensionen
"Every now and then a new way of thinking about the social world occurs. And once that happens it is difficult to imagine how sociology had managed without that new way of thinking. ....Ulrich Beck's concept of risk society ...was a kind of revelation. It provided for sociology a way of speaking of the physical world and of its risks that brought in a striking array of new topics. In effect it enabled people to speak of things, indeed in a way to "see" things, that they had been trying to speak of and to see, but the where the concepts had been chronically lacking." John Urry, Professor of Sociology, Lancaster University
