Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Previous Editions:
“If I could select only one book to introduce students and scholars to the exciting field of economic sociology, it would be The Sociology of Economic Life. Granovetter and Swedberg have done an outstanding job of covering all the bases. . . . Within one compact book, the reader finds an astute introductory essay, timeless classics, contemporary masterworks, and what’s currently cutting edge.” —Linda Brewster Stearns, University of California, Riverside
 
“The editors’ superb brief introduction to this edition will orient the reader, and their expert literature addendum to each chapter will fortify the reader to join the rapidly moving fronts of economic sociology, for which Swedberg is perhaps the leading observer and Granovetter the leading essayist. This book reaches the beginning student as easily as a specialist.” —Harrison White, Giddings Professor of Sociology, Columbia University
 
“The study of economic organization has witnessed a substantial transformation during the past twenty years. Economists and sociologists … are now engaged in an active and sometimes contentious dialogue. The Sociology of Economic Life usefully contributes to that dialogue by assembling some of the more influential contributions of sociologists under one cover.” —Oliver E. Williamson, University of California at Berkeley

18 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Poul Houman Andersen on July 4, 2001
Format: Paperback
This excellent book is a must for anyone interested in the historical roots of the dominant economic school today (noeclassical economics) and how it shares foundations with sociology. This may come as as a surptise for most students of either economics or sociology, but these approaches used to unite in studying the dynamics and mechanisms of society. However, due to fundamental disagreements pertaining on how to study this phenomenon, economics and sociology separated in the 19th century (the methodenstreit) read all about why and how these schools mnow wide apart maybe are reuniting in a neoinstitutional framework. This book is really well-written by one of the really great authorities in social network research: Richard Granovetter. I can only recommend this book which will make you feel much wiser on the social sciences when you are done with it

This is one of the best discussions that I have read on the subjects. It offers clarity on the various perspectives on the subject. I found this book key to my appreciation on the subject, which was a core concept in my doctoral thesis.
