Review of Nigel Dodd’s “The Social Life of Money

Although we are several decades into the development of the new economic sociology there still is relatively little sociological interest in “money”. Most authors refer to Georg Simmel’s “Philosophy of money” that despite having been written more than 100 years ago is still most relevant. As recent debates about Bitcoin and other alternative currencies have shown, money and its social uses have dramatically changed over the past few decades. Nigel Dodd has written an excellent book on The Social Life of Money that now has been reviewed in Symbolic Interaction by Tamara d’Auvergne. To access her review please click on the picture below.
