Managing the commons
Garrett Hardin’s seminal essay, “The Tragedy of the Commons,” appeared in 1968 and has been at the center of the debate of commonly owned ground or resources, such as western public grazing or the oceans. This is the second edition of a book exploring the issues in Hardin’s essay. As scarce resources are increasingly strained, it is evermore crucial to identify those resources which are held in common and are therefore prone to “tragic” wastes and abuses. The volume focuses on alternate institutional approaches to managing these resources to prevent tragedy.
