7 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Timothy P. Munyon on January 16, 2003
Format: Hardcover
Social Capital is a theory that, in part, describes the catalyst for human social systems and networking. It defines and explores methods humans employ to gain advantages. The book's application is sweeping; although, readers should have a background in the theory before tackling this particular work.
For educators, this book provides another angle for social contract theory, socio-economic systems, and synergy. For managers, this book provides a rationale for understanding and developing employee systems, including those in organized labor.
