Most Underappreciated

Margaret S. Clark

Oxford University Press

Margaret S. Clark describes her most underappreciated work: her research with Judson Mills on the distinction between communal and exchange relationships. In their studies, Clark and Mills argued that desire for mutual communal relationships normatively should lead a person to focus on what partners are doing for him/her. They have outlined how adoption of a communal norm sets the stage for distinctive types of exploitation that are violations of communal norms but arise in these relationships.

Keywords:   Margaret S. Clark, Judson Mills, communal relationships, exchange relationships, exploitation, communal norms
