Description

This edited collection looks at the emerging relationship between politics and economics. The analysis of power relations - traditionally the focus of political science - is becoming increasingly important to economists in order to understand concepts such as the 'contested nature' of market exchanges. These papers examine power relations in the firm and the market place and offer an economic perspective of political relations. The book is divided into three sections:

* politics and power in economic organizations

* the economic analysis of political organizations

* politics, economics and social change

The final section considers how a combination of economic and political tools can be used effectively to analyse social change.
