Theories of social capital researchers behaving badly by Ben Fine( Computer File )
11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,119 libraries worldwide

The rise and fall of social capital at the World Bank is critically explained as is social capital's growing presence in disciplines, such as management studies, and its relative absence in others, such as social history. Writing with a sharp critical edge, Fine not only deconstructs the roller-coaster presence of social capital across the social sciences but also draws out lessons on how (and how not) to do research."--pub. desc
