Social Capital in Chilean Communities:. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, May 2008, Pages: 252
During the last 30 years, Chile has pursued a strategy of market liberalization and structural transformations, even when the country has been growing fast, some evidence suggests that growth has not benefited regions equally. An explanation to this may lie in the role of social capital and institutions in that process. This book proposes a set of social networks tools to explore the configuration of the Social Capital in a community level. The Community Social Capital is understood as a Social Space, it is as a milieu of relations endogenously constructed through social interactions. By examining these patterns, it is possible to understand and to characterize any community structure, and to explain some of its economical outputs. This book should be useful to professionals in human geography, community studies, urban planning, regional science and public policy.
