Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: While an economy is always 'embedded' in society, the relationship between the two is undergoing profound changes in Europe, resulting in widespread instability which is emphasised by the current crisis. This book analyzes these changes, and in particular pressures of intensifying international competition, globalization and financialization within Europe.

Combining the perspectives of economic sociology, political economy and political science, the expert contributors offer an in-depth, multidisciplinary insight to the functioning of a number of institutional arenas around which European economies and societies are organized. Areas explored include the state and public policy at European national and regional level, the welfare state, industrial relations systems, education systems and the family.

This challenging and thought provoking book will be of great interest to a wide-ranging audience across a number of disciplines, including European studies, political science, comparative political economy, economic sociology, industrial relations and social policy.

Contributors: L. Burroni, R. Erne, H. Farrell, U. Glassmann, A. Hemerijck, S. Jong, M. Jose Gonzalez Lopez, T. Jurado-Guerrero, M. Keune, P. Le Gales, G. Meardi, M. Naldini
