چکیده

Few social scientific concepts have gathered so much attention and so many followers in such a short period of time than the concept of social capital. As the articles collected in the current volume show, the fundamental idea can be traced back at least to de Tocqueville ([1840] 1945, Chapter 1 in this volume). Hanifan (1920, Chapter 2 in this volume), Jacobs (1961, Chapter 4 in this volume), Loury (1977), and Bourdieu (1986) used the term social capital to express ideas that foretold the current meaning of the term. Schultz (1961, Chapter 3 in this volume) and Becker (1962, 1964), among other economists, articulated theories of human capital in the 1960s, paving the way to a broader understanding of 'capital'. Granovetter's (1973, Chapter 5 in this volume) seminal study of social networks is three decades old and still has an enormous influence on contemporary thinking about social capital.
