Book Title: The Logic of Collective Action

Author: Mancur Olson

Book Description:

Mancur Olson takes a very simple idea, that there is often a divergence between what people want and what they are able to achieve as a member of a group, and explores all of its logical implications. The book is an example of social science "big think" at it's best and is one of the key works of late twentieth century political economy.
