    Abstract

    Book synopsis: Presenting a much-needed corrective to the model of the "free market", authoritative contributors make historically-informed, interdisciplinary inquiries into the nature of market involvement in social, cultural and political relations. They examine critical thinkers, social movements and organizations and the ways in which they have influenced market relations from the eighteenth century to the present. The volume recreates those critical traditions and reform movements which sought to negotiate a path between the free market and the Marxist utopia of a society without markets. A critique of the centrality of the model of the 'free market' in public and academic life Features contributions from leading historians, theorists and social scientists Has methodological implications for contemporary debates about globalization and markets
