Summary "Resolving Social Dilemmas presents an accessible survey of current research on social dilemmas. A social dilemma arises when actions which are justifiable in terms of individual rationality (e.g. over-harvesting resources, or using private instead of public transportation) threaten the common good and, in the long run, the individual's own self-interest. The study of social dilemmas has important links with many areas in psychology, as well as with cognate disciplines such as risk analysis, environmental science, political science, and economics. Accordingly, the book appeals not only to psychologists, but also to a wider audience of scholars and researchers."--BOOK JACKET
