Description - Economic Sociology by Jeff Hass

This insightful key resource presents the clearest, most comprehensive and wide ranging account of economic sociology to date. Hass presents a critical and sophisticated yet approachable analysis of economic behaviour and phenomena. He makes the insights, claims, and logic of economic sociology interactive and accessible to students, while exposing the realities of today's complex economic world and the challenges of studying economies and societies. This introductory text: * provides a sophisticated yet approachable analysis of economic behaviour and phenomena * explores economic structures and change from a global perspective-by using comparisons and data from the United States, Europe, East Asia, Latin America, and post-socialist countries * shows how domestic and international economic forces work over time to shape modern economies * takes a critical perspective of both economic sociology and economics to establish useful insights * presents historical narratives showing the development of today's economic structures and institutions * addresses important economic issues directly impacting on students' lives-from the more visible (economic inequality and organizations) to the less visible (international economic trends, public policy, post-socialism). Incorporating illustrations, case studies, a glossary, chapter notes, and a comprehensive bibliography, this student-friendly text also puts forward suggestions for further project work by showing the reader areas that require further investigation.
