The Handbook of Advances in Trust Research presents new and important developments in trust research.

The contributors are all prominent and highly respected experts in the field.

Thereafter, themes which have gained prominence since the original Handbook are considered, such as trust and the financial crisis, public trust in business, and trust and HRM. The book also explores recent theoretical advances and points the way for future research on trust.

The Handbook contributes to an area of key importance to business and society and will appeal to practitioners and students of organization theory, strategy, sociology, organizational psychology and economics.
‘Overall, this is an interesting and relevant publication. Central themes of control, monitoring, structure and process intertwine across chapters, making it a coherent, balanced piece of work that reflects the efforts of the trust community to pull towards more convergent conceptualisations and measurement after a number of objections regarding the fragmented nature of prior research.’
