In honor of David Messick, this book is about social decisions and the role cooperation plays in social life. Noted contributors who worked with Dave over the years will discuss their work in social judgment, decision making and ethics which was so important to Dave.
The book offers a unique and valuable contribution to the fields of social psychology and organizational behavior. Ethical decision making, a central focus of this volume, is highly relevant to current scholarship and research in both disciplines. The volume will be suitable for graduate level courses in organizational behavior, social psychology, business ethics, and sociology.
Selected Editorial Reviews
... a timely handbook to which public management scholars and leaders can turn for a coherent understanding of the complexities of ... social dilemmas . ... it is replete with counterintuitive yet highly accessible research findings, providing an anatomy of social dilemmas and offering cogent analyses of the issues. Even the most critical reader should be satiated with many theory-driven solutions.
