20 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Indeterminacy and society by Russell Hardin( )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 1,546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the course of the book, Hardin outlines the various ways in which theorists from Hobbes to Rawls have gone wrong in denying or ignoring indeterminacy, and suggests how social theories would be enhanced - and how certain problems could be resolved effectively or successfully - if they assumed from the beginning that indeterminacy was the normal state of affairs, not the exception. Representing a bold challenge to widely held theoretical assumptions and habits of thought, Indeterminacy and Society will be debated across a range of fields including politics, law, philosophy, economics, and business management."--Jacket
One for all : the logic of group conflict by Russell Hardin( Book )

28 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 1,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a book that challenges the most widely held ideas of why individuals engage in collective conflict, Russell Hardin offers a timely, crucial explanation of group action in its most destructive forms. Contrary to those observers who attribute group violence to irrationality, primordial instinct, or complex psychology, Hardin uncovers a systematic exploitation of self-interest in the underpinnings of group identification and collective violence. Using examples from Mafia vendettas to ethnic violence in places such as Bosnia and Rwanda, he describes the social and economic circumstances that set this violence into motion. Hardin explains why hatred alone does not necessarily start wars but how leaders cultivate it to mobilize their people
Cooperation without trust? by Karen S Cook( )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 1,220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cooperation Without Trust? employs a wide range of examples illustrating how parties use mechanisms other than trust to secure cooperation. Lack of trust motivates people to reduce risks and establish institutions that promote cooperation. Cooperation Without Trust? suggests that trust may be a complement to governing institutions, not a substitute for them."--Jacket

Political order( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is required to create and sustain a political order is debated as intensively today as it has ever been. Constitutions are being written and rewritten in many parts of the world, a great many possibilities are being explored, and much that matters deeply to millions of people hangs on the results. In the eighteen chapters, all previously unpublished, that make up the present volume, major scholars address some of the most pressing questions about political order. Under what conditions do we get political order rather than political chaos? How is political order sustained once it has been created? Do constitutions and electoral systems matter, and if so how much? Is there one best type of political order, or, if not, what is the range of viable possibilities and how should they be evaluated?
