'This Handbook helps scholars account for more nuances and complications of the phenomenon of trust. But it is also a firm, intelligent reminder not to mutilate the phenomenon while crafting those accounts.'-- Karl E. Weick, Academy of Management Review
'Given the number of special issues and other empirical articles devoted to trust, a handbook to record the state of trust research (both conceptual and empirical) seems timely. . . this Handbook provides a collection of essays about different aspects, components, and qualities of trust, as well as differing perspectives on trust. . . The editors and authors seem to have delivered on their stated purposes, and the reader can approach the Handbook as a whole, or as separate parts that focus on a particular level of inquiry. . . The book is a primary resource for those who conduct trust research.' -- Joann Keyton, Academy of Management Review
'Bachmann and Zaheer's volume is well timed. Along with its valuable inventory of trust research, the Handbook is commendable for representing a true transnational collaboration that brings research from a range of European and North American scholars under one roof.' -- Ranjay Gulati, Academy of Management Review
