This accessible guide to the rapidly growing and interdisciplinary field of modern economic sociology offers critical insights into its fundamental concepts and developments. International in scope, contributions from leading economic sociologists and sociologically-minded economists explore the intersections and implications for theory and empirical research in both disciplines.
 
A Modern Guide to Economic Sociology positions contemporary studies in relation to earlier developments, highlighting the importance of understanding how stages of economic sociology have corresponded and converged with institutional, social, political and behavioural economics over time. Chapters offer a broad range of perspectives of topical and pressing themes including: wealth inequality, unsustainable development, ethical consumption, society and work, institutions and the economy, and society and entrepreneurship.
 
Covering both empirical and theoretical aspects of the field, this book will benefit economic sociologists as well as economic sociology students. It will also be an important read for both economics and sociology students looking to better understand the interactions between the two fields and how they depend upon and advance one another.
Critical Acclaim
‘A comprehensive and stimulating guide, written by some of the best known scholars in the fìeld, that shows how the theoretical and empirical findings of economic sociology correspond and complement those of economics, as a sort of countermelody that enriches our knowledge of the relationships between economy and society.’
– Alberto Martinelli, Università degli studi di Milano, Italy and Former President of the International Social Science Council, France

‘This volume offers a fresh look at central contemporary economic issues. The contributors go beyond sociology and fruitfully bring in both historical and current perspectives from adjacent disciplines to create an exciting scientific composition.’
– Patrik Aspers, University of St. Gallen, Switzerland
