    Peter Abell (2000). Putting Social Theory Right? Sociological Theory 18 (3):518-523.
    The paper considers some of the implications of Coleman Diagrams in the context of the study of social interaction at the microlevel. Such studies cannot be adequately modeled without improved theoretical rigor. The Theory of Comparative Narratives is advanced as one possible analytical framework of the modeling of interactions.

    Peter Abell (1984). Comparative Narratives: Some Rules for the Study of Action. Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour 14 (3):309–331.
    The paper explores the concept of a Narrative which is defined as a connected structure on a set of constrained actions and forbearances.

    Peter Abell (1995). Self‐Management: Is It Postmodernist? Critical Review 9 (3):341-348.
    Conceptions of self? management and the labor managed firm have not been well received by economists. They have, however, proved to be a continuing interest in the socialist movement from Marx onwards. Prychitko claims that by examining the humanist side of Marx, a socialist case can be made both for the LMF and markets in a postmodern world. Such a case rests upon an assumption that self? management confers competitive advantage by enhancing information sharing. The case, though interesting, is not (...)

  8. Peter Abell & Diane Reyniers (2000). Generalised Reciprocity and Reputation in the Theory of Cooperation. Analyse & Kritik 22 (1):3-18.
    We study the Iterated Bilateral Reciprocity game in which the need for help arises randomly. Players are heterogeneous with respect to 'neediness' i.e. probability of needing help. We find bounds on the amount of heterogeneity which can be tolerated for cooperation to be sustainable in a collectivity. We introduce the notion of Generalised Reciprocity. Individuals make a costly first move to benefit another under the reasonable expectation that either the other or somebody else will reciprocate. We hope that these tentative (...)
