About this book

As the shock of the 2008 European financial crisis begins to subside, it is time for scholars to step back and analyze the crisis's causes and effects from a multidisciplinary vantage point. Europe in Crisis examines the current state of the European economy, society, and polity, both on the theoretical and political levels, by placing special emphasis on its current crisis. With important contributions from heterodox economists and radical social and political scientists, this innovative new edited collection seeks to evaluate past efforts and policies (mainly since World War II), criticize the failed neoclassical/neoliberal perspectives, and offer alternative strategies and policies to Europe's socioeconomic impasse and misery.

Reviews

"This edited book compiles contributions from several of our finest economists. Their intention is to make creative use of well-established and highly sophisticated heterodox approaches for clarifying the multi-level and ongoing challenges plaguing European Union countries in the wake of the deep recession that got underway in 2008-9. This is economics presented as an especially thoughtful, brilliantly penetrating, and wonderfully insightful social science that clarifies and confronts extremely complex and pressing problems, while also offering plausible ways for European Union citizens to move forward toward a more promising future." - John Hall, Professor of Economics, Portland State University, USA and Research Professor, Halle Institute for Economic Research, Germany
