The Great Transformation: The Political and Econom&hellip by Karl Polanyi

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece, June 24 2000
This is undoubtedly Polanyi's finest work, and an example of the highest quality of scholarship available. This analysis of the rise and influence of "the socially embedded market" is simultaneously lucid and profound; clear and complex; detailed and sweeping. It provides one with a wonderful model for an interdiscipinary approach to the investigation of social phenomena - it is employs political, economic and sociological concepts within a genuinely historical framework to reveal truths about our modern industrial society that no single discipline could fathom. It is, in short, a masterpiece.
