Gender and Social Capital

Front Cover
Brenda O'Neill, Elisabeth Gidengil
Routledge, Sep 5, 2013 - Political Science - 432 pages
The volume brings together a stellar group of contributors who examine the social capital thesis by means of four different approaches: theoretical, historical, comparative, and empirical. In the end, this book will serve to answer two fundamental questions which have hitherto been neglected: What can a gendered analysis tell us about social capital? And what can social capital tell us about women and politics?
