Reviews

From the reviews:

"Sociological interest in trust has been increasing rapidly for the last two decades.  Unfortunately, much of the theoretical and empirical research on trust has lacked a solid grounding in the experiences of real people.  Weber and Carter fill this gap with a qualitative study of trsut based on in-depth interviews with individuals. The interviews provide a rich source of information for researchers interested in trust."
