'Repatriating Polanyi' is a fascinating book that shows the relevance of Karl Polanyi (born and raised in the Habsburg Empire) to the study of socialist and postsocialist Eastern Europe. Polanyi – a major inspiration worldwide for all those who are critical of neoliberalism – is now "repatriated" by Chris Hann, who has deep ethnographic knowledge of provincial worlds in Hungary and Poland. This book is a must for all those interested in socialism, postsocialism, and the critical study of neoliberalism.
