This biography shows how Karl Polanyi transformed from a bourgeois radical into a Christian socialist. Polanyi's experience was a reflection and condensation of extraordinary times that informed his ambivalent stance on social democracy, communism, the New Deal, and postwar America. It highlights the historical ruptures, tensions, and upheavals that he sought to capture and comprehend and, in telling his story, engages with the intellectual and political history of a turbulent epoch.
