Albert Hirschman is one of those remarkable scholars occasionally mistaken for more than one person. There is Hirschman the political theorist, best known for his classic Exit, Voice, and Loyalty. There is the Hirschman of The Passions and the Interests, the historian of ideas; and Hirschman the institutionalist, the practitioner or European reconstruction and Third World development, the adviser to foreign governments… For readers only dimly familiar with Hirschman’s oeuvre, his latest collection, Rival Views of Market Society, is…a kind of reprise, a recapitulation that includes variations on earlier themes, reconsiderations, and embellishment of familiar leitmotivs, with both echoes and charming reversals… There could be no better guide toward a revived discipline of institutional political economy.—Robert Kuttner, The New Republic

These ten essays…are vintage Hirschman—original, authoritative, and penetrating contributions to both economics and the broader social sciences…truly stunning as reflections of Hirschman’s special insights and formulations, of both what has been and what yet may be.Choice
