Riassunto: The life insurance industry was one of the most important financial institutions of the long nineteenth century, on both sides of the Atlantic. By the eve of the Great Depression, there existed in America the equivalent of a policy for every man, woman and child alive at the time, whilst in Britain the life insurance market grew steadily from its narrow aristocratic base to encompass all social classes at home and throughout the empire. The sources in this edition are collected in three themed volumes. Volume 1 looks at the public face of life insurance: how the industry sought to define and market life insurance to the public through treatises, brochures, prospectuses, and guides; innovations in life insurance products and sales techniques over time; and the exchange of ideas across the Atlantic. Volume 2 addresses the internal workings of the life insurance industry including its organization and architecture, agency system, fund management, competition between companies, fraudulent companies and legislation involving the sale of insurance. Finally, Volume 3 focuses on mortality and risk, from the collection of data and the development of mortality tables, the evolution of the medical exam and the evaluation of risk factors, to gambling, fraud and murder.
