In recent years, attacks upon fundamental notions of social welfare have spurred widespread discussion concerning the nature of gifts and gift giving. What assumptions about gift giving and generosity are at work in our society? The Logic of the Gift is an interdisciplinary collection that brings together some of the classic essays on gifts and gift giving, alongside work especially written for this volume.
