 ADVANCES IN HETERODOX ECONOMICS

(Routledge)
The Advances in Heterodox Economics series promotes the development of heterodox economics beyond the existing paradigms of Austrian, Feminist, Institutional-Evolutionary, Marxian, Post Keynesian, Radical, Social, and Sraffian economics. The series aims to publish books in five areas: (1) the synthesis of two or more heterodox approaches in the general fields of microeconomics and macroeconomics, or in specialized fields such as ecological or development economics; (2) the history and philosophy of heterodox economics, including intellectual biographies, institutional histories, and histories of theoretical controversies past and present; (3) the development of novel heterodox theories, such as feminist theories of international trade; (4) explorations of heterodox approaches to economic education; and (5) anthologies of heterodox work from all approaches in a specific field or area. The editor, associate editor, and editorial board work closely with individual authors and editors to ensure the quality of all published works.

 ADVANCES IN NEW INSTITUTIONAL ANALYSIS

(Edward Elgar)
Understanding the nature and role of institutions in the dynamics and failures of modern economies is an increasing concern among scholars and policy makers. Substantial progress has been made in economics as well as in other social sciences, particularly political science, history, sociology and the managerial sciences. New institutional scholars have been, and remain, at the forefront of this movement. Alternative views have also been proposed that deserve consideration. This series intends to promote the development and diffusion of these analyses with books from leading contributors as well as younger up-and-coming scholars. The series will be essential reading for researchers in economics, the social and managerial sciences, as well as policymakers.

Series is edited by Claude Menard

 ECONOMICS AS SOCIAL THEORY

(Routledge)
Social theory is experiencing something of a revival within economics. Critical analyses of the particular nature of the subject matter of social studies and of the types of method, categories and modes of explanation that can legitimately be endorsed for the scientific study of social objects, are reemerging. Economists are again addressing such issues as the relationship between agency and structure, between economy and the rest of society, and between the enquirer and the object of enquiry. There is a renewed interest in elaborating basic categories such as causation, competition, culture, discrimination, evolution, money, need, order, organization, power probability, process, rationality, technology, time, truth, uncertainty, value, etc. The objective for this series is to facilitate this revival further. In contemporary economics the label ‘theory’ has been appropriated by a group that confines itself to largely asocial, ahistorical, mathematical ‘modelling’. Economics is Social Theory thus reclaims the ‘theory’ label, offering a platform for alternative rigorous, but broader and more critical conception of theorizing.
Series is edited by Tony Lawson, University of Cambridge.

 FRONTIERS OF POLITICAL ECONOMY

(Routledge)
In recent years, there has been widespread criticism of mainstream Economics. This has taken many forms, from methodological critiques of its excessive formalism, to concern about its failure to connect with many of the most pressing social issues. This series provides a forum for research which is developing alternative forms of economic analysis. Reclaiming the traditional 'political economy' title, it refrains from emphasising any single school of thought, but instead attempts to foster greater diversity within Economics.

 HISTORICAL MATERIALISM BOOK SERIES

(Brill)
After the disappearance of Marxism as a (supposed) state ideology, a need for a serious and long-term book publishing programme on Marxism was recognised. Most publishers of scholarly work have abandoned any of the systematic publication of critical research on Marxist theory that they may have indulged in during the 1970s and early 1980s. The HM book series addresses this great gap with original monographs, translated texts and reprints of classics works.Series Editors, Paul Blackledge (Leeds), Sébastien Budgen (Paris), Michael Krätke (Amsterdam), Stathis Kouvelakis (London), Marcel van der Linden (Amsterdam), China Miéville (London)

 IAFFE ADVANCES IN FEMINIST ECONOMICS

(Routledge)
IAFFE aims to increase the visibility and range of economic research on gender; facilitate communication among scholars, policymakers, and activists concerned with women's wellbeing and empowerment; promote discussions among policy makers about interventions which serve women's needs; educate economists, policymakers, and the general public about feminist perspectives on economic issues; foster feminist evaluations of economics as a discipline; expose the gender blindness characteristic of much social science and the ways in which this impoverishes all research even research that does not explicitly concern women’s issues; help expand opportunities for women, especially women from underrepresented groups, within economics; and, encourage the inclusion of feminist perspectives in the teaching of economics. The IAFFE book series pursues the aims of the organization by providing a forum in which scholars have space to develop their ideas at length and in detail. The series exemplifies the value of feminist research and the high standard of IAFFE sponsored scholarship.

 NEW HORIZONS IN INSTITUTIONAL AND EVOLUTIONARY ECONOMICS

(Edward Elgar)
Economics today is at a crossroads. New ideas and approaches are challenging the largely static and equilibrium-oriented models that used to dominate mainstream economics. The study of economic institutions – long neglected in the economics textbooks – has returned to the forefront of theoretical and empirical investigation. This challenging and interdisciplinary series publishes leading works at the forefront of institutional and evolutionary theory and focuses on cutting-edge analyses of modern socio-economic systems. The aim is to understand both the institutional structures of modern economies and the processes of economic evolution and development. Contributions will be from all forms of evolutionary and institutional economics, as well as from post Keynesian, Austrian and other schools. The overriding aim is to understand the processes of institutional transformation and economic change.
The series is edited by Geoffrey M. Hodgson, Research Professor, University of Hertfordshire Business School, UK

 NEW POLITICAL ECONOMY

(Routledge)
New Political Economy is devoted to publishing recently and soon to be completed Ph.D. dissertations in political economy. I am looking for those dissertations in political economy that you as the Ph.D. committee chair or member thought might be especially interesting to and worthy of a wider audience. Dissertations can be either theoretical, empirical, or both. They also may be focused on a particular history or history of thought. I would like to leave the field of political economy, and hence dissertations written under that heading, as broadly conceived, but it is perhaps no secret that I am interested in those works focused particularly on Marxian theory including value analysis, postmodern Marxian analyses, gender studies, and class studies. However, I also want to stress that this series is open to a variety of different perspectives. Dissertations will be considered that do not fall specifically under one or the other of the above topics but are thought by you to be an original attempt to explore some question or issue in the broadly conceived field of political economy. The overall idea of this project is to circulate more widely the best work of your graduate students. The advantages to the graduate student of such a series are a wider circulation of his or her ideas and obviously a book publication in his or her early career.

 NEW THINKING IN POLITICAL ECONOMY

(Edward Elgar)
New Thinking in Political Economy aims to encourage scholarship in the intersection of the disciplines of politics, philosophy and economics. It has the ambitious purpose of reinvigorating political economy as a progressive force for understanding social and economic change. The series stimulates new work that will combine technical knowledge provided by the ‘dismal science’ and the wisdom gleaned from the serious study of the ‘worldly philosophy’. It is designed to reinvigorate our understanding of the social world by encouraging a multidisciplinary approach to the challenges confronting society in the next century.

 REAL UTOPIAS PROJECT

(Verso)
The Real Utopias Project embraces a tension between dreams and practice. It is founded on the belief that what is pragmatically possible is not fixed independently of our imaginations, but is itself shaped by our vision. The fulfillment of such a belief involves “real utopias“: utopian ideals that are grounded in the real potentials for redesigning social institutions.
In its attempt at sustaining and deepening serious discussion of radical alternatives to existing social practices, the Real Utopias Project examines various basic institutions and focuses on specific proposals for their fundamental redesign. The books in the series, edited and introduced by Erik Olin Wright, are the result of workshop conferences, at which groups of scholars are invited to respond to provocative manuscripts. The lead essay in each volume lays out the underlying logic of the proposal and is followed by the responses from critics and supporters.
Series Editor, Erik Olin Wright

 RESEARCH NETWORK MACROECONOMICS AND MACROECONOMIC POLICIES

(Metropolis Verlag)
Since 1996 the Research Network Macroeconomics and Macroeconomic Policies (RNM) has existed as a platform for analysis, research and discussion of macroeconomic issues. It is primarily based in Germany and Austria but cooperates closely with similar networks in other countries, particular in Europe. The Network is concerned to promote the revival and development of macroeconomic approaches which have tended to be eclipsed since the 1970s, especially in Germany, as a result of the dominance of neoclassical, monetarist and supply-side approaches. The Network aims to be both a platform for discussions about economic theory as well as a forum for economic policy debates: Macroeconomic theory is seen as the basis for policies which aim at high employment, environmentally sustainable growth, price stability, reduced inequality, and the elimination of poverty. In particular, the Network seeks to promote an exchange between competing theoretical paradigms. In the book series, the RNM the annual conferencs books have been published so far.

 STRUKTURWANDEL UND STRUKTURPOLITIK

STRUCTURAL CHANGE AND STRUCTURAL POLICIES

(Peter Lang)
This is a heterodox German book series. The series covers critical applied studies of recent developments in industries, technologies, regions and localities and focuses on respective uncertainty and coordination problems. Its theoretical perspective is on complexity and processes of emergent coordination and cooperation in forms like clusters, networks and new industrial districts. It considers the diversity of coordinating mechanisms and the scope of a new public policy action vis-á-vis systems of private agents. It sees itself as a contribution to a new, interactive meso-economics. It consists of German and English language volumes.
Series Editor, Wolfram Elsner, IINO-Institute for Institutional and Innovation, Faculty of Economics and Business Studies, University of Bremen, Germany.

 STUDIES IN ECONOMIC ETHICS AND PHILOSOPHY

(Springer)
This series is devoted to the investigation of interdisciplinary issues concerning economics, ethics, and philosophy. These issues fall, for example, in the categories of economic ethics, business ethics, economic culture, and economic philosophy, the latter including the epistemology and ontology of economics. Economic culture comprises cultural and hermeneutic studies of the economy. One goal of the series is to extend the discussion of the philosophical, ethical, and cultural foundations of economics and economic systems beyond the limits of the neoclassical tradition. It is intended to serve as an international forum for scholarly publications, such as monographs, conference proceedings, and collections of essays. Primary emphasis is placed on originality, clarity, and interdisciplinary synthesis of elements from economics, ethics, and philosophy.
Series editor: Peter Koslowski

 STUDIES IN ECONOMICS TRANSITION

(Palgrave Macmillan)
This new series has been established in response to a growing demand for a greater understanding of the transformation of economic systems. It brings together theoretical and empirical studies on economic transition and economic development. The post-communist transition from planned to market economies is one of the main areas of applied theory because in this filed the most dramatic examples of change and economic dynamics can be found. The series aims to contribute to the understanding of specific major economic changes as well as to advance the theory of economic development. The implications of economic policy will be a major point of focus.
General Editors: Jens Holscher, Reader in Economics, University of Brighton; and Horst Tomann, Professor of Economics, Freie University, Berlin.

 THE OTHER CANON

(Anthem)
As 'Reality Economics', the Other Canon reflects the study of the real economy, rather than the behaviour of a model economy based on core axioms. It will publish both classical and new works in this tradition, such as evolutionary, institutional, and post-Keynesian economics, on the history of economic thought and economic policy, on economic sociology and technology governance, as well as works in the traditions of the German historical school and in the theory of uneven development.
Editors: Erik S. Reinert (lead), Wolfgang Drechsler, Rainer Kattel, Jan Kregel
