The passions and the interests : political arguments for capitalism before its triumph by Albert O Hirschman( Book )
105 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,807 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 )
42 editions published between 1970 and 2004 in English and held by 1,248 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
Shifting involvements : private interest and public action by Albert O Hirschman( Book )
76 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,182 libraries worldwide
Why does society oscillate between intense interst in public issues and almost total concentration on private goals? In this work, Albert O. Hirschman offers a social, political and economic analysis dealing with how and why frustrations of private concerns lead to public involvement and public particpation that eventually lead back to those private concerns. 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 581 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

In 1940, all Varian Fry knew about being a secret agent was what he'd seen in the movies. But soon he was undercover in France, smuggling people blacklisted by Hitler to freedom. Told in his own words, this is the exciting story of one man who had the courage to try to change history. - Publisher

A propensity to self-subversion by Albert O Hirschman( Book )

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
The essential Hirschman by Albert O Hirschman( Book )
6 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 31 libraries worldwide
The Essential Hirschman brings together some of the finest essays in the social sciences, written by one of the twentieth century's most influential and provocative thinkers. Albert O. Hirschman was a master essayist, one who possessed the rare ability to blend the precision of economics with the elegance of literary imagination. In an age in which our academic disciplines require ever-greater specialization and narrowness, it is rare to encounter an intellectual who can transform how we think about inequality by writing about traffic, or who can slip in a quote from Flaubert to reveal something surprising about taxes. The essays gathered here span an astonishing range of topics and perspectives, including industrialization in Latin America, imagining reform as more than repair, the relationship between imagination and leadership, routine thinking and the marketplace, and the ways our arguments affect democratic life. Throughout, we find humor, unforgettable metaphors, brilliant analysis, and elegance of style that give Hirschman such a singular voice. Featuring an introduction by Jeremy Adelman that places each of these essays in context as well as an insightful afterword by Emma Rothschild and Amartya Sen, The Essential Hirschman is the ideal introduction to Hirschman for a new generation of readers and a must-have collection for anyone seeking his most important writings in one book"
