In recent years, sociologists have taken up a fruitful examination of institutions such as capital, labour, and product markets industrial organization and stock exchanges. Compared to earlier traditions of economic sociology, recent work shows more interest in phenomena usually studied exclusively by economists while it challenges the adequacy of the neoclassical model.In The Sociology of Economic Life , editors Mark Granovetter and Richard Swedberg incorporate classic and contemporary readings in economic sociology and related disciplines to provide students with a broad understanding of the many dimensions of economic life. A thorough and accessible introduction by the editors traces the history of thought in the field and assesses recent advances and future trends. The third edition is substantially revised and updated with eight new chapters, including original contributions from some of the field's leading scholars that explain cutting-edge research and present the essential scholarship in the field.

"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
