Understanding the Enterprise Culture: Themes in the Work of Mary Douglas

Synopsis

"The enterprise initiative is probably the most significant political and cultural influence to have affected Western and Eastern Europe in the last decade. In this book, academics from a range of disciplines debate Mary Douglas's distinctive Grid Group cultural theory and examine how it allows us to analyse the complex relation between the culture of enterprise and its institutions. Mary Douglas, Britain's leading cultural anthropologist, contributes several chapters." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Excerpt

This book originated in a conference around the work of Mary Douglas at the Centre for Public Choice Studies at the University of East Anglia.

Of the contributions by Mary Douglas, Chapter 2 first appeared in The Listener of 8 September 1977, Chapter 3 was prepared for a meeting of the Tocqueville Society in October 1982, and an earlier version of Chapter 4 was given at a conference on the enterprise culture at Lancaster University in 1989.

We would like to thank the Centre for Public Choice Studies for their support on this project.
