Tocqueville's political economy by Richard Swedberg ( )
15 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Tocqueville's Political Economy, Richard Swedburg shows that Alexis de Tocqueville had a highly original and suggestive approach to economics - one that still has much to teach us today." "Through careful readings of Tocqueville's two major books and many of his other writings, Swedburg lays bare Tocqueville's ingenious way of thinking about major economic phenomena. When examined together, Swedburg argues, these books and other writings constitute an interesting alternative model of economic thinking, as well as a major contribution to political economy that deserves a place in contemporary discussions about the social effects of economics"--BOOK JACKET

Max Weber and the idea of economic sociology by Richard Swedberg ( Book )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While most people are familiar with The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, few know that during the last decade of his life Max Weber (1864-1920) also tried to develop a new way of analyzing economic phenomena, which he termed "economic sociology." Indeed, this effort occupies the central place in Weber's thought during the years just before his death. Richard Swedberg here offers a critical presentation and the first major study of this fascinating part of Weber's work. Swedberg furthermore discusses similarities and differences between Weber's economic sociology and present-day thinking on the same topic. In addition, the author shows how economic sociology has recently gained greater credibility as economists and sociologists have begun to collaborate in studying problems of organizations, political structures, social problems, and economic culture more generally. Swedberg's book will be sure to further this new cooperation

Social mechanisms : an analytical approach to social theory ( Book )
20 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The advancement of social theory requires an analytical approach that systematically seeks to explicate the social mechanisms that generate and explain observed associations between events. These essays, written by prominent social scientists, advance criticisms of current trends in social theory and suggest alternative approaches. The mechanism approach calls attention to an intermediary level of analysis, in between pure description and storytelling on the one hand, and grand theorizing and universal social laws on the other. For social theory to be of use to working social scientists, it must attain a high level of precision and provide a toolbox from which middle-range theories can be constructed
