Frequently bought together
Vald Tarko has provided a brilliant overview of what Lin Ostrom often referred to as her and Vincent's ""polycentric journey"". Along the way she studied local public economies, the wrestling with common-pool resources throughout the world, and the complexity of economic development. Her enduring research legacy is to be found in both her multiple methodologies approach to studying institutional diversity, and the conclusions she drew on the possibility and sustainability of self-governing democratic societies. Tarko's book is a must read not only to those who want to learn about Elinor Ostrom and her contributions, but to all students of political economy.

Truly noteworthy bookReviewed in the United States on 25 December 2017
This book is an excellent summary and analysis of the important concepts of Ostrom. The parts on self-governance are particularly valuable and well done. Author's work is of such quality that I am prompted to look for his other books.
