He follows this up with compelling ideas about the reconstitution of social relations in a globalising world. The new forms of organised relationships envisaged – often just outside the range of conventional scholarship – are revelatory. In sum, this book is a bold assertion of the importance of social relationships and the social sphere in an emerging world more often exclusively defined in terms of concentrations of political and economic power.’ – Stephen Ackroyd, University of Lancaster, UK 2021 160 pp Hardback 978 1 78990 944 9 £70.00 / $99.00 May 2022 Paperback 978 1 80392 749 7 £21.95 / $35.00 eBook • Elgaronline New Horizons in Organization Studies series NEW IN PAPERBACK Global Youth Unemployment History, Governance and Policy Ross Fergusson and Nicola Yeates, The Open University, UK ‘Rarely has a study of global youth unemployment so adeptly combined an empirically-grounded scrutiny of its levels and trends, with a conceptually nuanced analysis of its political economy drivers at multiple scales. 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 SOCIOLOGY & SOCIAL POLICY NEW TITLES, APRIL – JUNE 2022
