Global sociology and the struggles for a better world: towards the futures we want

Global sociology and the struggles for a better world: towards the futures we want

Schulz, Markus S., editor

From a global financial crisis that has not lead to a fundamental change in institutions, to a global refugee crisis that questions our ideas of governance, set against a background of global climate crisis with no intergovernmental consensus on solutions. We are forced to ask ourselves, how do we think about the future, our futures? This richly theoretical and empirically informed text explores trends, alternative visions, and new directions for sociological research
