Abstract: "In recent years, anthropologists have been at the center of a debate about 'common property' and major contributors to the rich literature documenting examples of this type of property in land and other natural resources. A prime focus of critiques in this literature has been Garrett Hardin's formulation of 'The Tragedy of the Commons' which, since its first public airing in 1968, has captured the imagination of an entire generation of thinkers and policy-makers."
