Product Description


"Very well timed; without jumping to conclusions about the crisis,the book presents an alternative, indeed a sociological, approachto finance."

"By providing such a comprehensive overview of the non-economicstudies of money and endorsing their political and socialdimension, Money and Credit will be a good introduction to thesubject for all those interested, regardless of whether their focusis economic, political or sociological."
Political Studies Review

"Carruthers and Ariovich view the mysteries of money and creditthrough a distinctively sociological lens. They treat this complexand difficult subject in a way that is illuminating, accessible,and concise, yet subtle and sophisticated - the gold standard ofacademic writing."
Mark Granovetter, Stanford University

"Money and Credit offers a pithy, fast-movingintroduction to the sociology of money and credit, chroniclingwhere modern monetary systems came from, how people assign socialmeaning to money, how consumer and corporate credit marketsdeveloped, and how the current system of credit operates forfamilies and Fortune-500 companies alike. Carruthers and Ariovichprovide insights not only into how modern currency and creditmarkets work, but into why they sometimes fail to stabilize valueor to ensure that credit is given only where credit is due. Thislucid and engaging book should be required reading for students ofeconomic sociology."
Frank Dobbin, Harvard University

"Few books succeed in being both scholarly studies and textbooksat one and the same time, but Money and Credit is anexception. Written in an engaging and easy style, and full ofinteresting and important information on money and credit fromearly history to the current financial crisis, this important bookwill appeal to a wide audience. It is also likely to become thestandard work in the sociology of money and credit."
Richard Swedberg, Cornell University
