This edited volume is an exciting, challenging read. It would suit advanced scholars in a range of different disciplines as well as serve as an excellent text for an advanced group of post-graduate students studying sociology, law, economics and globalisation. The work brings together three themes that are intimately related but seldom drawn together ‒ namely, Polanyi’s thought, globalization and law. These themes, guided by Polanyi’s theory of a “double movement”, being a disembedding of the economy on the one hand, countered by re-embedding socially protective counter-movements on the other, are explored in the context of transnational markets. Written by a range scholars, including many leaders in a number of areas such as economic sociology, transnational private regulation, transnational corporate governance, constitutional and international law, the book is a veritable goldmine of ideas and thinking across a multidisciplinary landscape that is as innovative as it is interesting. Outstanding scholars such as Martin Herberg, Olaf Dilling, Marc Amstutz, Sol Picciotto and Peer Zumbansen are among the contributors.
