Yet, I found this book to be her most interesting piece of writing. It is experimental in form and successfully mixes stories of real-world change processes, with auto-biographical reflection and conceptual analysis in a way which really made me think. The book is an erudite and passionate articulation of pathways to action at a time when the world urgently needs to nurture the “proliferating micro worlds” that she describes.’ – Danny Burns, The University of Sussex, UK 2022 256 pp Hardback 978 1 80037 304 4 £90.00 / $130.00 Jun 2023 Paperback 978 1 0353 2032 5 c £35.00 / c $50.00 eBook • Elgaronline How to Research Guides TEXTBOOK Advanced Introduction to Social Policy, 2nd edition Daniel Béland, McGill University and Rianne Mahon, Carleton University, Canada ‘Daniel Béland and Rianne Mahon provide advanced students with an excellent overview of systems of social provision and regulation worldwide, notable for its theoretical sophistication and compelling empirical materials.

This Research Handbook is an excellent account of how sociologists can approach possibility from very diverse and controversial angles. A must read.’ Marta Soler Gallart, University of Barcelona, Spain Engaging with the key debates and issues in a continuously evolving field, Lavinia Bifulco and Vando Borghi bring together contributions from leading social scientists to debate the enduring relevance of public sociology in light of ongoing changes in the social world. Multidisciplinary in approach, this incisive Research Handbook advances dialogues between diverse scientific and environmental perspectives, and considers how best to design and conduct research in different scientific fields. Chapters discuss current teaching and critical thought within the discipline, identify promising analytical approaches through which to research key aspects of social transformation, and investigate the relationship between sociology and its various publics. Rather than reproducing a fixed analytical programme, the Research Handbook explores the potential of public sociology to collaborate and hybridize with novel research paths. Pushing the frontiers of public sociology, this insightful Research Handbook will prove an engaging and invaluable resource for social scientists and sociological communities, as well as for students in the social sciences. Its exploration of the applications of public sociology in empirical research and teaching will further benefit professionals working within public organizations. Lavinia Bifulco is Professor of Sociology in the Department of Sociology and Social Research at the University of Milano Bicocca and Vando Borghi is Professor of Economic Sociology and Sociology of Work and Organizations in the Department of Sociology and Business Law at the University of Bologna, Italy.
