Possibly the most talked about book of 2014, Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century is the subject of the December 2014 issue of the British Journal of Sociology.

This special Symposium edition of the BJS contains eleven original articles discussing various aspects and implications of Piketty’s work across sociology as well as other social science disciplines. Nigel Dodd, in his Editor’s Introduction, states that the aim was to create a space for “developing an interdisciplinary conversation about some really fundamental questions: not simply about social class and inequality, as important as these are, but also issues such as the way different social science disciplines think about history and social change, methodology, and contradiction, and about the social and political nature of capital, wealth and value”.

The entire issue is available free without a subscription, something to get your teeth into during the festive season!
