Abstract
The "International Encyclopedia of Economic Sociology" is the first encyclopedia in the field, and a timely response to the surge of interest in economic sociology over the last 30 years. Economic Sociology deals with the mul­tiple and complex relations between economy and society. In particular, it focuses on the impact of social, political, and cultural factors on economic behaviour. The "Encyclopedia" gives comprehensive and accessible coverage of the wide range of areas and subjects covered by the field, including, amongst many others, such major topics as consumption, corruption, democracy and economy, ecology, embeddedness, gender and economy, globalization, industrial relations, law and economy, markets, organization theory, political economy, religion and economic life, social capital, the sociology of money, state and economy, trust, and work. "The International Encyclopedia of Economic Sociology" is the much-needed major reference work on one of the richest areas of development in the social sciences in recent years. It is an extremely valuable new resource for students and researchers in sociology, economics, political science, and business, organization and management studies. The entries are cross-referenced and carry compact bibliographies. There is a full index.
