Emphasizing real-world examples, Komorita and Parks illustrate both the theoretical and the ecological relevance of social dilemmas, focusing on exchange theory to explain how conflicts are resolved. This book is appropriate for students of psychology, political science, and sociology. A pervasive feature of social interaction is the conflict between an individuals motive to maximize personal interests and the motive to maximize collective interests. This remarkable book examines how people are likely to resolve conflicts, focusing on the exchange theory method of analysis for conflict resolution. Covers the three basic research paradigms: the prisoners dilemma game, the social trap or replenishable resource trap, and the provision of a public good.Emphasizing real-world examples, the authors illustrate both the theoretical and the ecological relevance of studying social dilemmas. They offer interdisciplinary, comprehensive coverage of all the major topics, including political science, economic, and biological approaches.
Appropriate for upper-level undergraduate or graduate-level courses in psychology, political science, economics, and sociology disciplines, the book will also be useful to those interested in learning more about practical techniques designed to improve cooperation.
