This five-volume collection (with individual volumes available separately) provides a comprehensive overview of the regulation approach to capitalism and its crisis-tendencies. Edited by a major British contributor to the approach, the collection includes not only key theoretical and empirical works from leading French regulationists but also representative work from other regulation schools and scholars. It also includes major critiques of the approach. Topics covered include regulationist approaches to the labour process, accumulation regimes (especially Fordism and post-Fordism), modes of social regulation, forms of state intervention, and the crisis tendencies of capitalism. Contributions cover different periods and different countries as well as different sectors and the changing global economy as a whole. The set includes both pioneer works and recent theoretical innovations and also explores the links between regulationism and other approaches, such as institutionalism, radical geography, critical discourse analysis, and feminism. This collection will be an essential reference work in institutional and evolutionary economics, in radical political economy, and in all social science disciplines concerned with capitalism and its crisis-tendencies.

`Regulation Theory and the Crisis of Capitalism provides a comprehensive survey of the relevant literature on the topic. The collection is an essential reference wok in critical political economy. It is a more than useful starting point for those who wish to combine sociological analysis with a sound theoretical notion of contemporary capitalism.' -- Max Koch, International Journal of Contemporary Sociology `There is no doubt that this huge work will be taken as an essential point of reference in radical political economy, and for all social scientists who concern themselves with capitalist crisis. It should surely find its way into all good social science libraries.' -- James Smith, The Spokesman
