Editorial Reviews

Review


"The Luck of the Draw challenges traditional views of lotteries and offers an original perspective that is both nuanced and well-reasoned. Through an impressive mix of theoretical insight and empirical analysis, Peter Stone makes a provocative and compelling case for their value for social decision-making."--Jack Knight, Professor of Political Science and Law, Duke University


"An elegant and ultimately compelling book about the virtues of random selection in a wide range of contexts."--Geoffrey Brennan, Research School of Social Sciences, Australian National University


"...an excellent read."--Economics and Philosophy
