Karl Polanyi by Mark Harvey
Book DescriptionThe work of Karl Polanyi has gained in influence in recent years to become a point of reference to a wide range of leading authors in the fields of economics, politics, sociology, and social policy. The volume is a combination of reflections on, and assessment of, the nature of Polanyi's contribution and new strands of work, both theoretical and empirical, that has been inspired by Polanyi's insights. It gathers together the key contributions to the first ever workshop on the work of Karl Polanyi held in the United Kingdom. The workshop was opened by Kari Polanyi-Levitt, who also has written the Introductory Foreword to this book. Drawing on comparisons between his turbulent times and our own, in order to understand their contemporary relevance, Polanyi's work is situated in the intellectual and political contexts of his life in Europe and the USA. Several of the contributions develop Polanyian ideas in relation to contemporary capitalism. However, in a critical spirit, other contributions in the volume substantially transform his concept 'instituted economic process' in considering a broad range of contemporary socio-economic change: markets for mobile telephony, call centre operations, and European labour markets. This work is informed by the inter-disciplinary character, bringing together anthropology, economic sociology, and political theory, and so appeals to a wide academic readership.
