The passions and the interests : political arguments for capitalism before its triumph by Albert O Hirschman( Book )

111 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, Albert Hirschman reconstructs the intellectual climate of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries to illuminate the intricate ideological transformation that occurred, wherein the pursuit of material interests - so long condemned as the deadly sin of avarice - was assigned the role of containing the unruly and destructive passions of man. Hirschman here offers a new interpretation for the rise of capitalism, one that emphasizes the continuities between old and new, in contrast to the assumption of a sharp break that is a common feature of both Marxian and Weberian thinking. Among the insights presented here is the ironical finding that capitalism was originally supposed to accomplish exactly what was soon denounced as its worst feature: the repression of the passions in favor of the "harmless," if one-dimensional, interests of commercial life. To portray this lengthy ideological change as an endogenous process, Hirschman draws on the writings of a large number of thinkers, including Montesquieu, Sir James Steuart, and Adam Smith. Featuring a new afterword by Jeremy Adelman and a foreword by Amartya Sen, this Princeton Classics edition of The Passions and the Interests sheds light on the intricate ideological transformation from which capitalism emerged triumphant, and reaffirms Hirschman's stature as one of our most influential and provocative thinkers
Exit, voice, and loyalty; responses to decline in firms, organizations, and states by Albert O Hirschman( Book )

48 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in English and French and held by 1,327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An innovator in contemporary thought on economic and political development looks here at decline rather than growth. Albert O. Hirschman makes a basic distinction between alternative ways of reacting to deterioration in business firms and, in general, to dissatisfaction with organizations: one-exit-is for the member to quit the organization or for the customer to switch to the competing product, and the other-voice-is for members or customers to agitate and exert influence for change "from within."--Publisher description

Essays in trespassing : economics to politics and beyond by Albert O Hirschman( Book )

13 editions published between 1981 and 1984 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'This collection of essays provides an overview of the scholarship of one of America's leading political economists. Some of the essays deal with the area in which Albert Hirschman has made his best-known contributions - economic development and its political repercussions - and they provide a new perspective on some fundamental questions. The rest consider political participation, 'rational choice' theory, and the history of economic thought. The essays ignore any narrow disciplinary bounds, and instead 'trespass' from one social science to another, providing expert analysis and insights which will interest particularly those concerned with comparative politics, economic development, or Latin America.' from publisher's description
