From the Back Cover
"This anthology will be very useful for students of economic sociology at both the graduate or undergraduate level, and others who simply want an overview of this growing field will find it a valuable addition to their personal library. Dobbin's introduction is a highly intelligent, synthetic essay that both motivates the field and highlights its distinctive contributions."--Bruce Carruthers, Northwestern University, coauthor of Economy/Society: Markets, Meanings, and Social Structure
