    When is the State Autonomous? Culture, Organization Theory, and the Political Sociology of the State.Bruce G. Carruthers - 1994 - Sociological Theory 12 (1):19-44.

    The Meanings of Money: A Sociological Perspective.Bruce G. Carruthers - 2010 - Theoretical Inquiries in Law 11 (1):51-74.
    Money undergirds market exchange, but the social significance of money goes well beyond the obvious importance of its highly uneven distribution in modern market economies. In addition, modern money imposes an ostensibly precise and unidimensional valuation on social products, processes and relations that often conflicts with other modes of social valuation.
