Abstract: Presenting an overview of research in economics, anthropology, evolutionary and human biology, social psychology, and sociology, this book deals with both the theoretical foundations and the policy implications of cooperation. Presents an innovative synthesis of research in different disciplines to argue that cooperation stems not from the sterotypical selfish agent acting out of disguised self interest but from the presence of 'strong reciprocators' in a social group. The book deals both with the theoritical foundations and the policy implications.
