  • Cutting edge of research into theoretical and empirical aspects of voting systems
  • Contains the most up-to-date and accurate survey of the main single-winner election systems and the paradoxes afflicting them
  • Essential reading as theoretical underpinning for choice of voting system

Both theoretical and empirical aspects of single- and multi-winner voting procedures are presented in this collection of papers. Starting from a discussion of the underlying principles of democratic representation, the volume includes a description of a great variety of voting procedures. It lists and illustrates their susceptibility to the main voting paradoxes, assesses (under various models of voters' preferences) the probability of paradoxical outcomes, and discusses the relevance of the theoretical results to the choice of voting system.

Studies in Choice and Welfare is a book series dedicated to the ethical and positive aspects of welfare economics and choice theory. Topics comprise individual choice and preference theory, social choice and voting theory (normative, positive and strategic sides) as well as all aspects of welfare theory (Pareto optimality; welfare criteria; fairness, justice  and equity; externalities; public goods; optimal taxation; incentives in public decision making; cost-benefit analysis, etc.).
