1st lines: Christopher Holmes’ book, in its title, promises a detailed assessment of a question that has recently been on everyone’s lips: to what extend can Karl Polanyi’s theory of political economy, as formulated notably in his magnum opus, The Great Transformation, explain the relationship between present-day socio-economy and the rise of populism? What he delivers is far more than an answer to this question. Having published on Polanyian approaches to political economy earlier, what the author presents in this monography is, first of all, a comprehensive and independent reading of Karl Polanyi’s life work. Second, based on this, he offers his own take on the history of Western economic thought. Third, he sketches a ‘post-Polanyian‘ approach to the analysis of economic thought and economic policy in the late 20th/early 21st century by offering some profound pages on three different policy areas: regulation of the transnational financial system; global environmental policy; and British social policy.

1st lines: In my PhD thesis, I am interested in the sociology of the electorates of populist-radical-right (PRR) parties in continental Europe. As a part of the EUROGLOB project, I am conducting four weeks of qualitative field research in which I am interviewing “local-level experts” (party activists, in particular campaigners, unionists, etc.) about the German PRR-party AfD’s electorate in the two electoral circumscriptions where the party has yielded its highest results in the September 2017 national parliamentary elections in the country’s post-socialist East respectively the West. These are the district of Sächsische Schweiz-Osterzgebirge in Sachsen, East Germany, and the city of Gelsenkirchen in the Ruhrgebiet, West Germany. I have defined a specific social group – people who switch their vote between left-wing parties (major left SPD, radical left DIE LINKE) and the AfD – and two specific political issues of interest – “social justice” and “globalisation”. It is the way in which questions relating to these issues are narratively framed by the PRR’s voters that is interesting to me (rather than simple pro/contra positions).
