Reconstructing Karl Polanyi free pdf Karl Polanyi was one of the most influential political economists of the twentieth-century and is widely regarded as the most gifted of social democrat theorists. In Reconstructing Karl Polanyi, Gareth Dale draws upon primary sources archived in the countries that Polanyi called home-Hungary, Austria, Britain, the USA and Canada-to provide a sweeping survey of his contribution to the social sciences.Polanyi's intellectual and political outlook can best be summarised through paradoxical formulations such as `romantic modernist,' `liberal socialist,' and `cosmopolitan patriot.' In exploring these paradoxes, Dale excavates and reconstructs Polanyi's views on a range of topics that have been neglected in the critical literature, including Keynesian economic policy, the evolution and dynamics of Stalin's Russia, regional integration, and McCarthyism. He reconstructs and reinterprets Polanyi's philosophy of history, his theory of democracy, and his economic historiography of Ancient Greece and Mesopotamia, and guides readers through his critical dialogue with Marxism. While the central threads and motifs of this study are intellectual-historiographical in nature, Dale also critically analyses the views of Polanyi and his followers on issues of pressing present-day relevance, notably the `clash' between democracy and capitalism, and the nature and trajectory of European unification.
