Collective Action Processes at World-Economy, Polity, and Community Scales

Part of the Fundamental Issues in Archaeology book series (FIAR)

This chapter takes a more exploratory turn by thinking about collective action in frames of reference not often addressed analytically in the collective action literature. We do this by investigating collective action processes at three scales of human interaction: world-economy or macroregional, region (the polity and its nearest neighbors), and rural communities and households. Summaries of data and the sources we used are found in Appendix 2, and the coded values of the data analyzed statistically are found in Appendix 1 and Appendix 3.
