"Granovetter and Swedberg have done it again. In addition to the timeless classics, this new edition includes several important recent works as well as an expanded introduction. The Sociology of Economic Life will continue to be an ideal teaching tool for both undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as a valuable reference for scholars." -Mark S. Mizruchi, University of Michigan 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
