This rich, multidisciplinary collection engages with a critical theme - harnessing the regulatory capacity of a social sphere - which recognizes the embeddedness of economic transactions within a social and political landscape.

A key strength of this book is its integration of three distinct areas of scholarship: Karl Polanyi's economic sociology, regulation studies and socio-legal studies of transnational hazards.
