New book "Globalization, Political Economy, Business and Society in Pandemic Times"

The COVID-19 pandemic has influenced our society in an unprecedented way. Now when Stockholm University’s campus life is gradually coming back to normal, it is agreeable to see that a book entitled "Globalization, Political Economy, Business and Society in Pandemic Times" has been published.

The purpose of the book is to arrive at a holistic understanding of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on politics, economy, business, and society in a globalized world.

Globalization, Political Economy, Business and Society in Pandemic Times

The scientific community acted swiftly to study COVID-19 and its various possible societal correlations. During the past year, a large number of academic journals started speedily publishing COVID-19 related articles, many of which have been made available to the public, contributing timely to new knowledge production and dissemination.

However, a multidisciplinary approach to the study of COVID-19 has been rare. This edited book contributes to the growing literature on COVID-19 through a multidisciplinary approach by addressing both macro and micro issues from both local and global angles in both critical and self-critical tones. The book consists of 21 chapters contributed by 32 researchers from a wide range of academic disciplines. The book offers interesting knowledge with important policy implications.

The book is edited by two Stockholm University professors Tony Fang and John Hassler.

Tony Fang, PhD, is Professor of Business Administration, Stockholm Business School, Stockholm Univer
Tony Fang, PhD, is Professor of Business Administration, Stockholm Business School, Stockholm University, Sweden.
