About this product
- DescriptionThis insightful key resource presents the clearest, most comprehensive and wide ranging account of ecomic sociology to date. Hass presents a critical and sophisticated yet approachable analysis of ecomic behaviour and phemena. He makes the insights, claims, and logic of ecomic sociology interactive and accessible to students, while exposing the realities of today's complex ecomic world and the challenges of studying ecomies and societies. This introductory text: * provides a sophisticated yet approachable analysis of ecomic behaviour and phemena * explores ecomic structures and change from a global perspective-by using comparisons and data from the United States, Europe, East Asia, Latin America, and post-socialist countries * shows how domestic and international ecomic forces work over time to shape modern ecomies * takes a critical perspective of both ecomic sociology and ecomics to establish useful insights * presents historical narratives showing the development of today's ecomic structures and institutions * addresses important ecomic issues directly impacting on students' lives-from the more visible (ecomic inequality and organizations) to the less visible (international ecomic trends, public policy, post-socialism). Incorporating illustrations, case studies, a glossary, chapter tes, and a comprehensive bibliography, this student-friendly text also puts forward suggestions for further project work by showing the reader areas that require further investigation.
