Description - Cooperation in Modern Society by Mark van Vugt

Why do so many people volunteer to help others in need in society today? What makes people give up the convenience of driving their car to benefit a better environment? And why are citizens, in general, quite prepared to pay taxes to ensure adequate health care, and support for the elderly and unemployed? These are examples of a more fundamental question addressed in this book: why do people cooperate for the welfare of their community, state, or organization? Cooperation in Modern Society is a unique collection of contributions from internationally reputed scholars in the social sciences. In each of the chapters, field experts analyze a particular example of cooperation in modern society (e.g. volunteering, resource management, tax paying, political participation) that is based upon the most recent theoretical and research developments. As a whole, these contributions present a thorough and constructive view of people's abilities to solve the problems facing society in the 21st century and beyond. The book is a must read for students of social problems in all social science disciplines and for those professionally involved in solving these issues (policy-analysts and policy-makers).
