it was amazing

A Great Book. Must Reading! -- Not much to add to the many fine reviews here. However, I learned a great deal by Polanyi's discussion concerning reciprocity and redistribution. He only starts his discussion here in the Great Transformation, and furthers these points in his later works which also recommended. --- For challenges to Polanyi, check Sondra Halperin's criticism of this work. She is correct to argue that Polanyi is wrong about Europe's century of peace.
