The disciplines of economics and sociology, normally quite separate, are reconciled in this volume. Amongst the many questions considered are: the formal relationship between the two disciplines in terms of logical structure, types of hypotheses and explanatory models, the distinctive ranges of empirical data which each discipline calls into question, how the substantive findings of one discipline can modify the assumptions of the other. The book explores the historical development of economic theories of society from Marx through Weber, Schumpeter, Polanyi, Parsons and debates on rationality placed in context. The contribution of economic sociology is demonstrated through critical assessments of key areas of the literature such as the state/market division in capitalist and socialist economies, the informal economy and the relation of states and economies to the international arena.
