This landmark volume takes a first step towards imposing order on the increasingly diverse field of socio-economics by embedding the various disciplines and sub-disciplines in a common core. The distinguished contributors in this volume show how institutions, governance arrangements, societal sectors, organizations, individual actors, and innovativeness are intertwined and, ultimately, how individuals and firms have a high degree of autonomy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a rich collection, with important contributions by European and U.S. authors that deepen our understanding of the varied institutional terrains of capitalist economies. -- Walter W. Powell, University of Arizona, editor of Contemporary Sociology
The papers in this volume are interesting and well written. It is worthwhile and will be of interest to social scientists that study economic systems from a range of disciplinary backgrounds and the relationship between organization and other agents in economic systems. It is likely to be of particular interest to economic sociologists. * Administrative Science Quarterly *
This is a marvelous volume bringing together the diverse research frontiers of modern political economy, with chapters from many of the world's leading contributors. This institutionalist perspective is given coherence by Hollingsworth's penetrating introduction. -- David Soskice, Duke University and Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin
