The passions and the interests : political arguments for capitalism before its triumph by Albert O Hirschman( Book )
71 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,457 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 )
47 editions published between 1970 and 2007 in English and held by 1,261 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
Journeys toward progress; studies of economic policy-making in Latin America by Albert O Hirschman( Book )
63 editions published between 1963 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 1,245 libraries worldwide
Development projects observed by Albert O Hirschman( Book )
76 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,144 libraries worldwide
The experience accumulated in the wake of more than two decades of sustained effort to promote growth and change in the low-income countries presents a rich field for scholarly inquiry and new insights into the development process. The success and failures of such projects, the new skills and attitudes they impart, and the internal tensions they sometimes generate obviously have an important bearing on the next stages of a county's development effort. Yet little has become known about these truly formative experiences which are due to the behavior-and misbehavior-of development projects. In this recent volume, Professor Albert O. Hirschman turns his attention to the ways in which decision making is molded, activated, or hampered by the specific nature of the project that is undertaken; for example, the establishment and operation of a pulp and paper mill in east Pakistan, an irrigation project in Peru, railway expansion in Nigeria, and other development undertakings. In some parts of the present inquiry Hirschman elaborates on his earlier writings in this series; and occasionally, he qualifies or modifies his previous conclusions; the bulk of the study explores new territory

Shifting involvements : private interest and public action by Albert O Hirschman( Book )
50 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 901 libraries worldwide
Why does society oscillate between intense interst in public issues and almost total concentration on private goals? In this work, Albert O.

Emerging from this study is a wide range of insights, from a critque of conventional consumption theory to a new understanding of collective action and of universal suffrage

Essays in trespassing : economics to politics and beyond by Albert O Hirschman( Book )
14 editions published between 1981 and 1984 in English and held by 590 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

Les passions et les intérêts justifications politiques du capitalisme avant son apogée by Albert O Hirschman( Book )
20 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in French and Undetermined and held by 308 libraries worldwide
Présentation de l'éditeur : "" Deux constatations sont à l'origine du présent essai. La première est que la science sociale de notre temps n'est pas parvenue à élucider la question des conséquences politiques de la croissance économique. La seconde est que ces conséquences sont souvent désastreuses quel que soit le régime (capitaliste, socialiste ou mixte) qui préside à la croissance. C'est sans doute ce deuxième fait qui a été déterminant." Cette étude, sous-titrée Justifications politiques du capitalisme avant son apogée, est une réflexion à la fois historique, politique, philosophique et économique sur les ressources de la pensée sociale des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles. Intitulée " Comment, pour combattre les passions, on fera appel aux intérêts ", la première partie est une analyse des différents systèmes de la pensée économique. La seconde est consacrée aux auteurs qui, comme Montesquieu et James Steuart, ont le mieux approfondi ces idées clefs. Enfin, ces analyses conduisent l'auteur à une nouvelle manière de concevoir l'esprit du capitalisme et les conditions qui l'ont vu naître, puis à esquisser quelques réflexions sur les leçons que nous pourrions en tirer aujourd'hui."
A propensity to self-subversion by Albert O Hirschman( Book )
16 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 62 libraries worldwide
In the substantial essays that open this collection, Hirschman reappraises points he made in such books as Exit, Voice, and Loyalty, The Strategy of Economic Development, and the Rhetoric of Reaction. Subsequent essays fruitfully reexplore the themes of Latin American development and market society that have occupied him throughout his career. Hirschman also forays into new puzzles, such as the likely impact, negative or otherwise, of the Eastern European revolutions of 1989 on the Third World, the on-and-off connections between political and economic progress, and the role of conflict in enhancing community spirit in a liberal democracy
