Book Description

Public choice or rational politics differs from other approaches to the study of political behavior in that it builds on models in which rational individuals seek to advance their own interests. Containing twenty-five essays, this five-part volume surveys the main ideas and contributions of the field.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By J. Michael Showalter on August 11, 2000
Format: Paperback
Although this book is nothing spectacular, it is what it is. This is the best introductory book on political economy that there is. Without being weighed down heavily by cumbersome mathmatics, etc. (which is something that economics teachers should probably leave to the appendixes) this book expalins most if not all of the major interest-areas in this ever important subdiscipline.
There are no breathtaking theses in this book: it is simply the best minds in the business explaining their particular subdiscipline: be it voting beahvior or Niskeanan bureaucracy. As such, it is also a convienient reference for a more advanced student.

By Oliver Schmidt on June 17, 2012
Format: Paperback
An excellent selection of papers which cover comprehensively the range of public choice theory, including perspectives beyond, notably a paper by Nobel Laureate of 2009, late Elinor Ostrom. A must-have for teaching or researching on political economy.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This edited volume is a compilation of essays on various topics in Public Choice. Dennis Mueller's "Public Choice III" is a far better buy for the interested student, with this book perhaps being a good source for supplemental reading.
