Cooperation in modern society: promoting the welfare of communities, states and organisations

Biel, Anders, Snyder, Mark, Tyler, Tom R. and Van Vugt, Mark (2000) Cooperation in modern society: promoting the welfare of communities, states and organisations, London, UK, Routledge, 264pp. (Routledge Research International Series in Social Psychology).

Record type: Book


Why do so many people volunteer to help others in need in society today? What makes people give up the convenience of driving their car to benefit a better environment? And why are citizens, in general, quite prepared to pay taxes to ensure adequate health care, and support for the elderly and unemployed? These are examples of a more fundamental question addressed in this book: why do people cooperate for the welfare of their community, state, or organization? Cooperation in Modern Society is a unique collection of contributions from internationally reputed scholars across the social sciences.
