Handbook on Risk and Inequality Edited by Dean Curran, University of Calgary, Canada ‘A timely examination of the intersection of risks and inequalities in our “world at risk”, this Handbook brings together innovative theoretical analysis and significant empirical insights. It wholly fulfils its promise to address a gap in the current debate and to delineate novel approaches for understanding the effects of man-made risks across groups, domains, and societies.’ – Maria Grazia Galantino, Sapienza University of Rome, Italy Sept 2022 c 304 pp Hardback 978 1 78897 225 3 c £160.00 /c $235.00 eBook • Elgaronline Advanced Introduction to Social Capital Karen S. Cook, Stanford University, US Karen S. Cook, one of the most distinguished contributors to the research on trust and social capital, has done us an enormous service with her Advanced Introduction to Social Capital. Far more than an Introduction, this book is also a critical review, a presentation of new questions, and a comprehensive case for importance of studying trust, social capital, and their relation to understand just about every major aspect of contemporary society, from health, to crime, to cyberspace, to status, to social inequality. Newcomers will find a clear, engaging, and well-written summary of the field; experts will find an astute, fresh perspective that puts trust at the heart of the social order, and that somehow manages to introduce new questions to a well-established literature. Advanced Introduction to Social Capital is a fantastic and strongly-recommended book.’ – Mario L.

Cerroni demonstrates a remarkable ability to navigate between the Ancient and Modern Canon. His reconstruction of the Greek myths compels us to rethink the sociology of modernity.’ – Frank Furedi, University of Kent, UK Sept 2022 c 192 pp Hardback 978 1 80088 289 8 c £75.00 / c $110.00 eBook • Elgaronline Imagining Pathways for Global Cooperation Edited by Katja Freistein, University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany, Bettina Mahlert, University of Innsbruck, Austria, Sigrid Quack and Christine Unrau, University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany This exciting collection combines sharp theoretical analysis with a rich array of illuminating case studies to show the powerful role played by creative human imagination in shaping transformative processes of global cooperation. In departure from established understandings of global change as rigidly constrained by deterministic historical structures or rationalized institutional procedures, it makes a compelling case that processes of collective imagining – drawing together symbolic representations, emotions, and normative beliefs – can forge new cooperative pathways in confronting the challenges of 21st century world politics.’ – Terry Macdonald, University of Melbourne, Australia Sept 2022 c 288 pp Hardback 978 1 80220 580 0 c £100.00 / c $145.00 eBook • Elgaronline 2 Save up to 20% at e-elgar.com I For our electronic content, visit: elgaronline.com SOCIOLOGY & SOCIAL POLICY NEW TITLES, JULY – SEPTEMBER 2022

Participation Income An Alternative to Basic Income for Poverty Reduction in the Digital Age Heikki Hiilamo, University of Helsinki and Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare, Finland ‘At a time when welfare states are figuring out how to deal with the societal ravages of a pandemic crisis, participation income is an idea that needs to be given due attention. Leading social policy scholar Heikki Hiilamo has written the book that tells us how and why. – Jurgen De Wispelaere, Stockholm School of Economics in Riga, Latvia Aug 2022 c 192 pp Hardback 978 1 80088 079 5 £75.00 / $110.00 eBook • Elgaronline A Research Agenda for COVID-19 and Society Edited by Steve Matthewman, University of Auckland | Waipapa Taumata Rau, Aotearoa New Zealand ‘A Research Agenda for COVID-19 and Society provides impressive critical analyses and innovative research reflections on the complex social consequences of the SARSCoV 2 pandemic. The volume has compelling contributions from social scientists from a range of disciplinary fields, including sociology, anthropology, philosophy and political economy, and provides incisive analyses of reactions to the pandemic in a number of countries.

This is all the more vital as biopolitics is at the moment perhaps the most dynamic field of thought in the humanities and social sciences. From debates over COVID-19 responses to the governance of climate change, biopolitical framings are at the heart of social and political contestation.’ – David Chandler, University of Westminster, UK Aug 2022 232 pp Hardback 978 1 80088 796 1 £90.00 / $135.00 eBook • Elgaronline Towards Sustainable Welfare States in Europe Social Policy and Climate Change Edited by Mi Ah Schoyen, Bjørn Hvinden, Oslo Metropolitan University and Merethe Dotterud Leiren, CICERO – Center for International Climate Research, Norway ‘This edited book should be applauded for insisting that environmental issues are racing up the agenda and must gain pride of place in future thinking. In particular, global heating and the climate crisis pose an existential threat to contemporary economic, social and political systems – including welfare states in the global North. It is remarkable that this book is one of very few within the field of social policy to recognise this fact.’ – From the Foreword by Ian Gough Sept 2022 c 304 pp Hardback 978 1 83910 462 6 c £105.00 / c $150.00 eBook • Elgaronline Trade Shows in the 21st Century The Role of Events in Structuring Careers and Professions Edited by Anne-Sophie Béliard and Sidonie Naulin, Grenoble Alpes University (UGA), France ‘Over hundreds of years fairs have signified festivities and a break with the ordinary, and they have long been a site for social interaction between professionals and lay-people. In this timely and excellent volume, the focus is on trade shows. We learn from the many sparkling chapters, capturing the varieties of themes and forms trade shows can take, just how important they are for professionals, individually and collectively. This highly relevant book addresses the more recent phenomenon of online events and what they bring, while simultaneously showing why physical events seem to be here to stay.’ – Patrik Aspers, University of St. Gallen, Switzerland Sept 2022 c 256 pp Hardback 978 1 80088 603 2 c £95.00 / c $140.00 eBook • Elgaronline A Modern Guide to Creative Economies Edited by Roberta Comunian, King’s College London, UK, Alessandra Faggian, Gran Sasso Science Institute, Italy, Jarna Heinonen, University of Turku, Finland and Nick Wilson, King’s College London, UK ‘A Modern Guide to Creative Economies is essential reading for considering and reflecting on how we build healthy, equitable and sustainable conditions for the creation, celebration and exchange of human expression.

It provides interesting and valuable insights both for scholars and students into how the relationship between the state, the market and society has been evolving and the present and future challenges.’ – Emmanuele Pavolini, University of Macerata, Italy Aug 2022 160 pp Hardback 978 1 80392 560 8 £75.00 / $99.00 eBook • Elgaronline How to Engage Policy Makers with Your Research The Art of Informing and Impacting Policy Edited by Tim Vorley, Syahirah Abdul Rahman and Lauren Tuckerman, Oxford Brookes University, UK and Phil Wallace, University of Manchester, UK ‘There is a growing interest in improving academic policy engagement in the UK and internationally. However, we still have a lot to learn about how to do this work better. This book provides a novel contribution, with authors drawn from UK government, parliament, research funders and academia. It focuses on three key areas: how academics articulate the value and relevance of research to policy, the different ways in which academicpolicy engagement occur and how research impacts upon policy. The contributors bring a vast amount of experience to bear on these topics and as such help to move forward our thinking on how academic-policy engagement might help to promote the use of research to support policy making.’ – Annette Boaz and Kathryn Oliver, Transforming Evidence and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK July 2022 288 pp Hardback 978 1 80037 895 7 £100.00 / $145.00 eBook • Elgaronline Political Change through Social Innovation A Debate Frank Moulaert, KU Leuven, Belgium, Bob Jessop, Lancaster University, Erik Swyngedouw, University of Manchester, UK, Liana Simmons, Political Scientist, Food Activist, Italy and Pieter Van den Broeck, KU Leuven, Belgium ‘This thought-provoking volume sits at the nexus of social innovation and democratic political theory and practice. Leading international scholars compare and confront different approaches to nurturing emancipatory social change in a world increasingly encountering populist politics and ruptures to “democratic” systems. It provides a valuable landmark for anyone interested in solidarity-based social relations and the potential for social political change.’ – Jean Hillier, RMIT University, Australia July 2022 176 pp Hardback 978 1 80392 513 4 £75.00 / $110.0 eBook • Elgaronline 4 Save up to 20% at e-elgar.com I For our electronic content, visit: elgaronline.com SOCIOLOGY & SOCIAL POLICY TITLES, JULY - SEPTEMBER 2022
