Traditionally social science has treated culture as a peripheral issue. However, culture has moved to the core of the debate. It examines the impact of this transformation or "cultural turn" on the major social science disciplines. The authors draw on inter-disciplinary perspectives to pinpoint the weaknesses involved in overstating the cultural dimension of economic and social issues. The result is a cogent account of why culture is important and what the limits of cultural analysis are.
