More About the Author

I left a small mill town in West Virginia to study chemistry at Harvard, but somehow the twists and turns of life led me to study Russia, and then in graduate school at Princeton to study sociology--especially political and economic sociology, social change, power, culture, and of course Russia. I spent much of the 1990s living in Russia, watching that country go through the confusion of post-socialism in all its dimensions and facets. From 2000 to 2006 I taught at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom, and got to watch that country unravel under New Labour. I returned home in time to see the tail end of the Bush era and watch the recent contentious politics. Personally all this horrifies me, but intellectually...this is what I study. I continue to follow Russia and the UK, and I am now turning to the Blockade of Leningrad (1941-1944), a horrifying event in human history that deserves far more attention and investigation than it has received--the good, the bad, and the ugly.

On a personal note, I married a Russian (Irina) and we have had three children. Tragically, Mitchell died at eighteen months, driving home the centrality of suffering and tragedy in the human condition. But we are blessed with Daniel and Peter, who remind me of the need--the necessity--to understand that human condition, to study it carefully and not to give into dogma (mine or others'), to improve life for their generation.

This text provides an very good overview of economic sociology and its unique historical development as a discipline and its relationship to dominant assumptions of neoclassical economics.
