Product description

Review

This will undoubtedly be a very popular, much-assigned, and much-cited magnum opus.Carl Simon, University of MichiganWhat emerges from Elinor Ostrom's book is precisely what the title suggests---an understanding of the diverse nature of institutions that exist in human societies to promote human cooperation or to hinder it. This is a significant work by one of the most thoughtful social scientists in the world and it will attract a large number of readers and enlighten them.Peter Boettke, George Mason UniversityUnderstanding Institutional Diversity is a comprehensive book on the management of the common pool. It includes overviews of major theoretical issues and empirical studies. Anyone who is interested in how common-pool problems are or are not successfully resolved by locally devised arrangement should read it.Gary D. LibecapThe Independent Review
