The evolution of path dependence - Cheltenham, UK Edward Elgar Publishing 2009 - ix, 228 p. - New horizons in institutional and evolutionary economics .

The notion and interpretation of path dependence has been discussed and utilized in various social sciences during the last two decades. This book provides significant further insights on how various applications of path dependence have evolved. The authors suggest that there has been a definite development from applications of path dependence in the history of technology towards other fields of social science. They also discuss the various definitions of path dependence (strong or weak) and explore the potential of path dependence in new areas such as political economy and economic geography. (
