How do you know? : the economics of ordinary knowledge by Russell Hardin( )

22 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 2,187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hardin presents an essentially economic account of what an individual can come to know and then applies this account to many areas of ordinary life: political participation, religious beliefs, popular knowledge of science, liberalism, culture, extremism, moral beliefs, and institutional knowledge
Indeterminacy and society by Russell Hardin( )

21 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 1,997 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( )

28 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 1,578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these examples, groups of people have been governed by movements that managed to reflect their members' personal interests - mainly by striving for political and economic advances at the expense of other groups and by closing themselves off from society at large. The author concludes that we make a better and safer world if we design our social institutions to facilitate individual efforts to achieve personal goals than if we concentrate on the ethnic political makeup of our respective societies
Cooperation without trust? by Karen S Cook( )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 1,450 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 )

12 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 814 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?

Reilly analyses the design of electoral systems for divided societies, examining various divided societies which utilise 'vote-pooling' systems - including Sri Lanka, Northern Ireland and Fiji.

Political Order : Nomos XXXVIII by Ian Shapiro( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The collapse of the Soviet empire stands as a dramatic reminder that political institutions are human creations that can be designed more or less well. The question of what constitutes a viable political order is as old as it is profound, and is a central part of the works of such thinkers as Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Locke, Montesquieu, and the American Founders. In eighteen original essays, Political Order presents the work of major scholars such as Robert Dahl, John Gray, Jennifer Nedelsky, Pasquale Pasquino, James Scott, Karen Orren, Steven Skowronek, Walter Dean Burnham, M
