dc.description.abstract Family business scholars have argued that succession entails all actions and events that occur between generations to transfer ownership and/or management. Building on this definition, I focus explicitly on the period prior to the successor’s entering the business. I borrow the concept of “anticipatory socialization” from organizational so-ciologists and argue that this period has unique characteristics in multi-generational family firms mainly because of the close link between the successor’s choice of occu-pation and his or her choice of organization. In an explorative historical case study I investigate the unique features of anticipatory socialization in family firms. My find-ings include a detailed description of the information channels and social capital transfers during that period as well as an assessment of the role of narrations, symbol-ic objects, and formal and informal education. In the last part of the paper, I link these findings to Pierre Bourdieu’s capital theory, which allows for a more systematic ap-proach to anticipatory socialization in family business. en
