In this insightful book of Patrik Aspers (Stockholm University) presents a comprehensive sociological view of Markets. Aspers smoothly combines theory with empirical examples and illuminates the origins and forms of markets, how thay are made and the importance of identity and emotions. An important theme in the book is that a whole host of markets are embedded within one other and in social life at large. Aspers discusses these in the context of other forms of economic coordination, such as networks and organizations. The book is an important contribution to the field and valued reference material for research and teaching.
