       theory -- Using STAMP. 
520    Engineering has experienced a technological revolution, 
       but the basic engineeringtechniques applied in safety and 
       reliability engineering, created in a simpler, analog 
       world, havechanged very little over the years. In this 
       groundbreaking book, Nancy Leveson proposes a newapproach 
       to safety--more suited to today's complex, sociotechnical,
       software-intensive world--basedon modern systems thinking 
       and systems theory. Revisiting and updating ideas 
       pioneered by 1950saerospace engineers in their System 
       Safety concept, and testing her new model extensively 
       onreal-world examples, Leveson has created a new approach 
       to safety that is more effective, lessexpensive, and 
       easier to use than current techniques. Arguing that 
       traditional models of causalityare inadequate, Leveson 
       presents a new, extended model of causation (Systems-
       Theoretic AccidentModel and Processes, or STAMP), then 
       then shows how the new model can be used to create 
       techniquesfor system safety engineering, including 
       accident analysis, hazard analysis, system design, 
       safetyin operations, and management of safety-critical 
       systems. She applies the new techniques toreal-world 
       events including the friendly-fire loss of a U.S. 
       Blackhawk helicopter in the first GulfWar; the Vioxx 
       recall; the U.S. Navy SUBSAFE program; and the bacterial 
       contamination of a publicwater supply in a Canadian town. 
       Leveson's approach is relevant even beyond safety 
       engineering, offering techniques for "reengineering" any 
       large sociotechnical system to improve safetyand manage
