Product Overview

"This is a well-written, engaging book dealing with an important and widely discussed topic about which there is still little detailed work available in English: the historical evolution of Italian industrial districts or local and specialized networks of small- and medium-sized firms. Gaggio does a particularly fine job of showing how the variegated history of the Italian jewelry districts challenges Robert Putnam's celebrated account of social capital as the inherited foundation for local cooperation in the regions of northern Italy."--Jonathan Zeitlin, University of Wisconsin, Madison

"This book is quite unusual and innovative in straddling different disciplines and approaches and making use of a variety of primary sources, including some novel archival ones. As such, it differs substantially from most other books on industrialization and industrial districts. The arguments are well made and well supported from the case studies and the work will be useful to economists, sociologists, social and economic historians, and social anthropologists."--Anna Cento-Bull, University of Bath
