Beyond the Marketplace is an interdisciplinary view of the relationship between markets and society. Do individuals behave in markets as neoclassical theory assumes they do? Can other social institutions and processes--e.g., family formation and voting behavior--be analyzed with the same analytic tools we use to study markets? How is economic behavior shaped by institutions beyond the marketplace? Do markets themselves have a social and cultural structure which is not adequately explained by the formal tools of neoclassical analysis? In Beyond the Marketplace, economists, sociologists, political scientists, historians, and anthropologists respond to these, and related, questions.

Review:

“For at least a half-century, there has been active debate on the nature of the economy between classical and neoclassical economists and advocates of a more "substantivist" approach (most recently, cultural anthropologists)... The essays are uniformly well written and excellently documented... Heartily recommended for academic libraries, community college level up.”

S. M. Soiffer, Choice
