Led by eminent scholars Martinelli and Smelser, a team of prominent researchers examines the relationship between economy and society. Beginning with an analysis of the historical development of economic theories, the contributors to Economy and Society consider vital issues such as educational systems and the economy; market, state, and their place in advanced capitalist societies as well as in centrally planned economies; ideology and economic activity; international financial networks and institutions; and transnational corporations. As a major overview of the bond between sociology and economy, students, scholars, and professionals in sociology, economics, and public policy will find this book valuable and enlightening.
