About this book

This collection presents a political sociology of crisis in Europe. Focusing on state and society transformations in the context of the 2008 financial crisis and its aftermath in Europe, it observes a return of redistributive conflicts that correlates with a 'new politics of identity', nationalism, regionalism and expressions of Euroscepticism.

Reviews

“This is an ambitious collection, bringing together a diverse group of scholars in an attempt to understand what the ongoing crisis in Europe means for relationships on the continent. … The book will be of interest to readers seeking to understand the impacts of the European crisis across a variety of settings. It also serves as a useful marker of the utility of political sociology and a point from which future research can depart.” (European Journal of Cultural and Political Sociology, Vol. 4 (2), 2017)
