Product Overview

'For this book Bartkus and Davis assembled the social capital equivalent of the New York Yankees' "slugger's row" of the 1950's, recruiting some of the best Hall of Fame hitters around along with a number of future stars still early in their careers. The result is a good reflection of the current state of the literature on social capital.'?Robert D. Putnam, Harvard University, USA

'Social capital is widely used and sometimes mis-used by scholars, policymakers, and the general public. The time has come for thoughtful reflection, synthesis, and informed criticism regarding this important concept. Bartkus and Davis have developed a ground-breaking collection of essays exploring the ideas and evidence underpinning social capital.'?Denise M. Rousseau, Carnegie Mellon University, USA

At heart, social capital is a simple concept ? that relationships matter. Bartkus and Davis foster a vibrant debate among leading scholars as to the critical definition, creation, and consequences of social capital. I commend Bartkus and Davis for their interdisciplinary efforts, for there is no more important challenge facing the social sciences today than the exploration of trust and social capital in our society.'?Father Theodore Hesburgh, University of Notre Dame, USA
