Product Description

Review

"The diverse essays in this edited volume focus sharply on the important question: where does social capital come from? Using different analytical approaches to data culled from a variety of countries across three continents, the book advances our understanding of the nature and origins of social capital."--Ken Newton, University of Southampton

"Generating Social Capital is an excellent collection of original, thematically related essays and empirical reports. The great strengths of the book rest in its comparative perspective and in its challenges to and reinterpretations of the conventional literature." --M. Kent Jennings, Department of Political Science, University of California, Santa Barbara

"This nicely integrated volume significantly contributes to our understanding of the construction, destruction, and forms of social capital. Its focus on the institutions and contexts that produce trust lays the groundwork for both better public policy and better social science."
--Margaret Levi, Jere L. Bacharach Professor of International Studies, University of Washington
