Book description

The problem of collective action is that each member of a group wants other members to make necessary sacrifices while he or she ‘free rides’, reaping the benefits of collective action without doing the work. Inevitably the end result is that no one does the work and the common interest is not realized. This book analyses the social pressure whereby groups solve the problem of collective action. The authors show that the problem of collective action requires a model of group process and cannot be deduced from simple models of individual behaviour. They employ formal mathematical models to emphasize the role of small subgroups of especially motivated individuals who form the ‘critical mass’ that sets collective action in motion. The book will be read with special interest by sociologists, social psychologists, economists and political scientists. It will also be of concern to those in industrial relations and communications research working on issues in collective action and rational choice.

Reviews

“This book is a useful addition to recent efforts to stretch rational-choice collective-action theory beyond its original assumptions. this contributes to a healthy reawakened debate on the conditions surrounding collective action.” Sun-Ki Chai, Social Forces

Critical Mass is a strain famed for its massive yields, huge power and vigorous growth and firmly cemented in history by the late, great Howard Marks, Aka Mr. Nice, and legendary breeders Nevil & Shantibaba.

Strong Strains

he named it Monster Mass. Soon after, he began sharing his genetics between a collaboration of unified minds met on his travels and through the Internet. Together they set about creating the very best reworked versions of Critical Mass the world has ever seen. Using the revered Monster Mass strain within their breeding programmes drove their efforts into pursuing the production of the ultimate Mass genetics, all of which undergo the CMC’s strict grading regime before being considered for endorsement as a Critical Lee acclaimed strain. To date, the collective is the fastest growing network of Mass enthusiasts on the planet and boasts well over 100 years of breeding experience between them, resulting in a selection of the biggest, baddest Mass hybrids of modern times.

Innovative & practical

At Critical Mass Collective we put each strain through rigorous testing programmes and will not consider a strain “Critical Lee acclaimed” until it has scored effectively and consistently in numerous categories.
