Wed, 2017-01-25 03:03

“This long awaited book by one of the founders of the New Economic Sociology builds conceptual grounds for a sociological perspective of the economy. Focusing on the role of norms, trust, power, and institutions for the workings of the economy, Society and Economy is an impressive synthesizing statement that will help structure future research. Based on discussions covering a staggering range of scholarship, Granovetter’s book demonstrates the crucial importance of social structures for economic organization. One can only hope that it will reach a broad and interdisciplinary audience.”—Jens Beckert, Director of the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies

Part social commentary, part history, part academic inquiry, Temin’s book tells us how the two parts of the modern dual economy can be glued back together.” —Claudia Goldin, Harvard University
