520    The question addressed in this challenging new book is: 
       What binds societies together and prevents them from 
       disintegrating into chaos and war? Elster analyzes two 
       concepts of social order: stable, predictable patterns of 
       behavior, and cooperative behavior. The book examines 
       various aspects of collective action and bargaining from 
       the perspective of rational choice theory and the theory 
       of social norms. It is a fundamental assumption of the 
       book that social norms provide an important kind of 
       motivation for action that is irreducible to rationality.
