Description

The author argues that the countries that, at the end of the 20th century, have economic, social and ecological success will not be unleashed market economies but "active and learning societies" that attempt to solve their problems via an organizational and governance-related pluralism.

"Messner"s book is an excellent monograph and surely presents a highly valuable theoretical innovation within the network debate and shows interesting links with broader issues in social theory.
