Economic Sociology

Economic Sociology

by Richard Swedberg

Editorial Reviews

Applying the sociological approach to economic phenomena is an endeavor which was neglected for a half century or so, but has been enjoying lively attention during the last ten to 15 years. After the first article, which is an introductory survey of major traditions of the field, 23 readings are arranged in two sections: early contributions, and new economic sociology. Each begins with an abstract, and they are written by such contributors to the discipline as Max Weber, Joseph Schumpeter, and Karl Polanyi, among others, and reprinted from journals such as Economy and Society, J. of General Education, J. of Institutional and Theoretical Economics, and Social Research, among others. No subject index. Distributed by Ashgate. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
