A clear and compelling account of the symbiotic relationship between the market and the base of mutual relationships that normally empower as well as constrain the market, the tension of the title. Stephen Gudeman convincingly argues the necessity of this tension, not only for economic sanity but for economic progress as it is conventionally defined. This book is must reading for social scientists, particularly for economists. --Stephen Marglin, Harvard University, and author of The Dismal Science: How Thinking Like an Economist Undermines Community The work represents a significant contribution by a distinguished economic anthropologist who has done much to shape the subdiscipline in recent decades...The author s command of economic theory and issues is impressive, perhaps greater than that of any anthropologist working in the area today. --Mark Moberg, University of South Alabama This book is a breath of fresh air in the arid field of economics. It articulates a humane perspective on the economy with notions that matter for how we read the economic lives we are living. The book is a must for anyone who needs or wants to open the eyes for the full range of values that constitute economic processes. I learned a lot from the studying it. --Arjo Klamer, Erasmus University
