Sherman Folland and Eric Nauenberg present the cutting edge of research covering the ever-expanding social capital field. With excellent contributions from leading academics, the Elgar Companion to Social Capital and Health offers a developed examination of new research across sociology, epidemiology, economics, psychology, and political science. Authors from across North America, Europe, and Asia provide wide-ranging and detailed accounts of social capital and health, focusing on social networks, causality, and productivity. Sections cover theoretical perspectives and empirical evidence supporting the connection between social capital and health worldwide. Authors discuss ageing, immigration, religion, and workplace health as well as focusing on social capital in developing countries experiencing rapid and extensive economic growth. Essential reading for any aspirational social capital and health policy academic, this Companion offers future paths for research within sociology, health economics, epidemiology, political science, and social policy. The breadth of study would also benefit public health officials, policy analysts, and healthcare decision-makers.
