      I read the intro by the editor, which was kind of long and dense but OK, but the chapter on critical realism by Collier and the conclusion by Burawoy were both shorter and pretty much amazing. A lot of the other chapters look less interesting to me, although at some point I will definitely read the one that criticizes the concept of "social capital".
