The passions and the interests : political arguments for capitalism before its triumph by Albert O Hirschman( Book )
46 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,684 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.

Exit, voice, and loyalty; responses to decline in firms, organizations, and states by Albert O Hirschman( Book )
35 editions published between 1970 and 2004 in English and held by 1,385 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

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 )
12 editions published between 1981 and 1984 in English and held by 555 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
