The introduction to the book, Social capital, children and young people, explores the interest in, and perceived utility of, social capital. The attraction to the concept of social capital by policy makers and researchers alike has been developed and been sustained both by politicians to address social policies and by some academics as an important scientific tool. The Schools and Social Capital Network, which was established within the Applied Educational Research Scheme, a major programme of research and research capacity building, is described, then each of the chapters is outlined.
