"The Calculus of Consent is one of the founding documents of the Public Choice school, and one of the most important books in political science in the last century. So it takes an ambitious book to promise to extend, and in some cases correct, the Buchanan and Tullock work. But Dougherty and Edward deliver on that promise. Make no mistake: this is much more than a reevaluation and update of the classic work. Dougherty and Edward bring these classic debates back to life, using the most recent literature and techniques. This book will be on dozens of graduate reading lists within a year of being published." - Michael Munger, Professor of Political Science and Professor of Economics, Duke University and Past President, Public Choice Society
"Dougherty and Edwards have written an excellent book. Its title echoes the classic work by Buchanan and Tullock. The authors re-examine, formalize and provide new insights into some of the main issues addressed in that classic and examine alternative properties of various electoral mechanisms. This book will be of significant interest to both political scientists and practitioners." - Annick Laruelle and Federico Valenciano, University of the Basque Country and Ikerbasque, authors of Voting and Collective Decision (2008)
