This edited volume serves an important need, unmet until its publication. The carefully selected works included in the book coherently showcase the key ideas and assumptions that underlie research on CPR management by Elinor Ostrom and other Bloomington School scholars and inform the design principles identified in Governing the Commons (Ostrom, 1990).... The Resource Governance volume, thus, serves two complementary purposes. First, the volume lays a foundation for probing the institutional settings in which voluntary behavior occurs for the management or delivery of community goods and services. Second, the volume has interdisciplinary appeal as a teaching text for courses on nonprofit organizations, voluntary action, and public policy, among many others. By reading this volume, students will learn about the evolution of a highly regarded research program and the key concepts motivating related studies. They will also be able to identify biophysical and social factors that both shape and are shaped by institutions governing collective action.

Daniel Cole and Michael McGinnis have done a magnificent job in putting together the most comprehensive, best structured and most representative collection of works that define the core ideas and insights of the Bloomington School.

This volume is the perfect companion to Elinor Ostrom’s pathbreaking Governing the Commons. Here you will find papers published before and after she wrote that book, revealing how and why her thinking about natural resource governance developed over time. I found this volume to be loaded with insight, and shining with inspiration.
— Scott Barrett, Columbia University
This second volume on the Bloomington School of Political Economy brings together the key contributions of the Ostroms and their colleagues to understanding natural resource governance more insightfully. Combining older and more recent writings, the collection marks highlights, and also traces a genealogy of the writings of Elinor Ostrom. It will find a place in the shelves of all serious scholars and students of the subject.
