Managing the Commons, Edited by Garrett Hardin and John Baden; Indiana Univ. Press, 1998, (264p).
An anthology of essays that explore the implications of Garrett Hardin's classic essay, The Tragedy of the Commons. The commons are the world's common resources, and the tragedy is that it clearly to an individual's advantage to exploit a common resource as thoroughly as possible. Yet if all individuals were to follow this strategy the resource would be exhausted - to the detriment of all. Clearly, to maintain the world's resources there must be limitations on the individual's (and the corporation's) right to exploit.
