He considers not only the market forces emphasized in traditional theories, but also crystallized macro- and meso- structures, such as legal arrangements. And he reviews the impact of less-codified ideological and cultural frames that modify and enlarge organizations. The book is a real contribution to the institutional analyses central to contemporary thought, as both an intellectual synthesis and a useful text.’ – John W.
