About the Author

Harrison C. White is the Giddings Professor of Sociology at Columbia University. His books include "Markets from Networks: Socioeconomic Models of Production" (Princeton) and "Careers and Creativity: Social Forces in the Arts".


Praise for the original edition: "[In this book] White has managed to cram a lifetime of singularly deep thinking about the social order that makes the best start yet on augmenting the economic understanding of man."--David Warsh, Boston Globe Praise for the original edition: "This work is unique in that it presents a fully formed structural theory of human behavior and organization from the ground up, including seminal terms and the directions in which future research should proceed."--C. A. Pressler, Choice Praise for the original edition: "[This book] deserves to be widely read and discussed. White attempts nothing less than a comprehensive theoretical synthesis of social scientific ideas."--John Scott, British Journal of Sociology
