Between Hierarchies and Markets

The Logic and Limits of Network Forms of Organization

Grahame F. Thompson

This book offers an overview of theories about networks used in a range of overlapping fields. At the same time the author pulls together a set of disparate analyses into an argument with a strong and imaginative critical focus. A key aspect to the book is the way networks understood as theoretical and analytical devices, are related to networks operating as definite practices of social organization, governance and coordination.
