Review quote

"Nigel Dodd is one of a small but growing number of sociologists who believe that a economica phenomena are too important to be left entirely to the economists. The Sociology of Money is an original and path--breaking effort to restore one of the most central institutions of modern society to the mainstream of sociological analysis. It will surely inspire others to follow in its wake." Geoffrey Ingham, Christa s College, Cambridge "The central contention of the book that money is mysterious in ways that go beyond the thinking of most economists is certainly correct, and the promise that sociologists will develop new theories and policy contributions is exciting." Max Stuer, London School of Economics "The Sociology of Money offers a much--needed, wide--ranging study of the discussions on the nature, properties and role of money in social, political and economic theory. Dodda s critical significance of money as medium in social theory. This analytical and critical account should be essential reading for those interested in social theory and political economy alike." David Frisby, Professor of Sociology, University of Glasgowshow more
