28. Richard Swedberg, Sociology

Principles of Economic Sociology (Princeton University Press, 2003). Swedberg presents major concepts, ideas, and findings in the field of economic sociology. He also introduces a new perspective on economic sociology by advancing the argument that not only social relations, but also interest, has to be taken into account when an analysis of economic topics is made. This argument is presented and worked through in a series of chapters that deal with such topics as firms and markets, politics and the economy, law and the economy, and gender and the economy.
