Summary
  • "As the shock of the 2008 European financial crisis begins to subside, it is time for scholars to step back and analyze the crisis' 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"--
  • "The book is a collection of papers by international distinguished scholars with the theme of current financial crisis in Europe and its social consequences. The idea of the collection of papers was the result of the gap in the literature that we identified regarding the sources, analysis, and effects of the crisis in Europe. Following, we decided not to write a book on the crisis presenting one issue or one perspective. Instead, we invited the authors of the chapters of this book, so as to exploit their comparative advantage of each of author of each element of the crisis. Consequently, we hope we achieved a complete picture of the crisis, in particular, a complete picture from a heterodox viewpoint. The heterodox analysis of the crisis, while we argue is a more accurate analysis of the sources and effects of the crisis, its voice in the dominant world-wide free market ideology cannot easily be heard. This collection of articles is an avenue not only for a more accurate picture of the crisis in Europe but more importantly as a means for the heterodox voice to be heard. The book offers a heterodox analysis of the crisis using a variety of methodologies such as Institutional, Post Keynesian and Marxist. Most importantly, the book offers policies nearly in every aspect of the society to overcome the crisis towards building an equitable sustainable growth enhancing society"--
