Bano, Masooda (2012) Breakdown in Pakistan: How Aid is Eroding Institutions for Collective Action, Stanford University Press

A study into how and why aid breaks down cooperation within leaders and joiners engaged in community based collective action. The work will specifically benefit those interested in understanding why provision of material incentives often crowds out intrinsic motivation to undertake an action.

Bano, Masooda (2012) The Rational Believer: Choices and Decisions in the Madrasas of Pakistan, Cornell University Press

This text presents rich empirical data on factors shaping the appeal of religious education, Islamic feminism, and jihad. However, the book also hopes to make a theoretical contribution. It is one of the first attempts to systemically apply New Institutional Economics (NIE) framework to study of religious behavior. For those interested in applying NIE framework (especially Douglass North’s theoretical propositions) to study of informal institutions, this book will hopefully prove an engaging read.
