Pandemics, Politics and Society. Critical Perspectives on the Covid-19 Crisis. Edited by Gerard Delanty. Berlin: De Grutyer

It brings together the reflections of leading social and political scientists who are interested in the implications and significance of the current crisis for politics and society. It is a cutting edge and accessible publication with chapters on topics such as the nature and limits of expertise, democratization, emergency government, digitalization, social justice, globalization, capitalist crisis, and the ecological crisis.
