Review of the hardback: 'For too long both the study of social interactions and the discipline of economics have been impoverished by a radical separation between these two fields of inquiry. In this important new volume Gui, Sugden, and the other contributors creatively explore many fundamental ways in which sociality and economics are linked. Their insights will be valuable for scholars across the social sciences.' Robert Putnam, Harvard University
Review of the hardback: 'Economics and Social Interaction is an excellent examination of the important idea that humans value social relations per se. It bridges the seemingly contradictory tenets of rational choice theory and the mechanisms behind social capital, altruism, and reciprocity. It establishes an exciting dialog between economics and sociology, and shows the directions where these interdisciplinary studies will lead.' Ernst Fehr, Director of the Institute for Empirical Research in Economics, University of Zurich
