Fergusson and Yeates make a compelling case for seeing endemic youth unemployment as an issue of grave social injustice–one that supply-side palliative approaches have patently failed to address, and which is in urgent need of integrated employment, social protection and macroeconomic policies backed by a more cohesive system of social and economic governance at the global level.’ – Shahra Razavi, Director of the Social Protection Department, International Labour Organization, Switzerland 2021 296 pp Hardback 978 1 78990 041 5 £95.00 / $145.00 2022 Paperback 978 1 80392 603 2 £30.95 / $45.00 eBook • Elgaronline Handbook of Alternative Theories of Political Economy Edited by Frank Stilwell, David Primrose, University of Sydney, Australia and Tim B.

He rightly argues that too many scholars take a narrow disciplinary view, while others downplay or ignore corporations in their analysis. One theme throughout is how corporate leaders govern—within the organization itself and throughout global supply chains with significant consequences for society. This short yet comprehensive book covers the key issues and questions that scholars need to address to explain our current era.’ – Virginia Haufler, University of Maryland, College Park, US 2020 192 pp Hardback 978 1 78897 752 4 £74.00 / $116.00 2022 Paperback 978 1 80392 602 5 £25.00 / $35.00 eBook • Elgaronline Elgar Research Agendas NEW IN PAPERBACK China and the West Edited by Jan Svejnar, Columbia University, US and Justin Yifu Lin, Peking University, Beijing, China ‘A timely and thought-provoking evaluation of the key policy dilemmas in China and the West.
