|“||The Handbook of Social Capital offers an important contribution to the study of bonding and bridging social capital networks, balancing the `troika' of sociology, political science and economics.|
Eminent contributors explore the different scientific approaches required if international research is to embrace both the bright and the more shadowy aspects of social capital. The Handbook stresses the importance of trust for economies all over the world and contains a strong advocacy for cross-disciplinary work within the social sciences.
Social capital is becoming one of the most important and hotly discussed topics of today. This inter-disciplinary Handbook intends to serve as a bridge for students and scholars across the social sciences.
