Both must finds ways to reach agreements that can be maintained through reciprocity if they are to avoid the "tragedy of the commons" from which they cannot extract themselves.

The book provides a broad-ranging introduction to the theory and theoretical issues involved, combining this with a detailed review of research evidence on how agreements to co-operate are established and maintained.
