Networks, trust and social capital

E. Shaw, L. Stringfellow

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This collection of papers adopts a sociological perspective to discuss an area of growing entrepreneurship research interest: the social-capital, trust, networks nexus. Most chapters were originally presented at the Economic Sociology Research Network of the European Sociological Association, in Helsinki, 2001 and the book presents a refreshingly European perspective on social capital. Containing theoretical and empirical investigations, the book provides a useful introduction to concepts including social capital, trust and reciprocity while developing and extending established sociological perspectives on these.
