Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Volume One of the selected works of Gordon Tullock contains many important essays. The most famous article here is "The Welfare Costs of Tariffs, Monopoly, and Theft". This article founded the modern rent seeking literature. The Transitional Gains Trap is another interesting article in the same section, but less well known. Tullock also wrote seminal articles on voting/demand revelation, bureaucracy, revolution, social costs, inheritance, and legal procedures. Tullock has few peers in terms of his creativity and insight. This volume is important because it reprints articles that for the most part get far too less attention. Given the technical nature of this book, it will not be a best seller, but it should be read by economists and political scientists.

Format: Paperback
Also available in a hardcover edition (0865975205, $20.00) Virginia Political Economy is a collection of selected works by Gordon Tullock which have been compiled, edited, and provided with an informative introduction by Charles K. Rowley (Duncan Black Professor of Economics at George Mason University) and is the first of a proposed ten volume series showcasing Tullocks' published academic papers and essays as selected from twenty-three books and several hundred articles and papgers produced by Tullock between 1954 and 2002. Chapters offer an in-depth exploration of such issues as the problems of majority voting, issues associated with redistributive policies, the problem of social cost, bioeconomics, and much more. A scholarly, rational, and well-presented voice of insight into difficult quandaries of state government and fiscal policy.
