Propensity to Self-subversion by Albert O. Hirschman
Book DescriptionIn these 20 essays Albert O. Hirschman examines his own ideas, and economic development. They also bring perspectives on the material in his 12 previous books and essays. In the 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 re-explore the themes of Latin American development and market society that have occupied him throughout his career. Hirschman also forays into 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. Hirschman presents autobiographical fragments that reflect his deep involvement in some of the important events of this century. He recollects his flight from Hitler's Germany in 1933, his studies in Paris, his work with the antifascist underground in Italy in 1937-38, and his role in helping Varian Fry in Marseilles, in 1940, to rescue political and intellectual refugees from Vichy, France.

Books By Author Albert O. Hirschman
Development Projects Observed, Paperback (December 2014)
Originally published in 1967, the modest and plainly descriptive title of Development Projects Observed is deceptive. Today, it is recognized as the ultimate volume in Hirschman's groundbreaking trilogy on development, and as the bridge to the broader social science themes of his subsequent writings.
Passions and the Interests, Paperback (October 2013)
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.
Shifting Involvements, Paperback (January 2002)» View all books by Albert O. Hirschman
Why does society oscillate between intense interest in public issues and almost total concentration on private goals? This work offers a social, political, and economic analysis dealing with how and why frustrations of private concerns lead to public involvement and public participation that eventually lead back to those private concerns.
