Editorial Reviews
Review
 "The articles are all first-rate, neither gushing over nor dismissing [Polanyi] - rather, trying to discover the limits and potential of his work. For the most part, the contributors approach the subject from different perspectives that the reader gets a much broader understanding of Polanyi and his great work.... Recommended." - Choice

Product Description
  Karl Polanyi's 1944 book, The Great Transformation, offered a radical critique of how the market system has affected society and humanity since the industrial revolution. This volume brings together contributions from distinguished scholars in economic anthropology, sociology and political economy to consider Polanyi's theories in the light of circumstances today, when the relationship between market and society has again become a focus of intense political and scientific debate. It demonstrates the relevance of Polanyi's ideas to various theoretical traditions in the social sciences and provides new perspectives on topics such as money, risk, work and the family. The case studies present materials from around the world, including Britain, China, India, Jamaica and Nigeria. Like Polanyi's original work, the critical engagement of these essays will be of interest to a wide readership.
