Overview

The term 'social capital' is a way of conceptualizing the intangible resources of community, shared values and trust upon which we draw in daily life.

This is an indispensable introduction to the topic which explains the theoretical underpinning of the subject, the empirical work that has been done to explore its operation and the effect that it has had on policy making.
