qThe Calculus of Consent, q the second volume of Liberty Fund's qThe Selected Works of Gordon Tullock, q is a reprint edition of the ground-breaking economic classic written by two of the world's preeminent economists--Gordon Tullock and Nobel Laureate James M. Buchanan. This book is a unique blend of economics and political science that helped create significant new subfields in each discipline respectively, namely, the public choice school and constitutional political economy. Charles K. Rowley, Duncan Black Professor of Economics at George Mason University, points out in his introduction, qqThe Calculus of Consentq is, by a wide margin, the most widely cited publication of each coauthor and, by general agreement, their most important scientific contribution.qqThe Calculus of Consentq is divided into four parts, each consisting of several chapters. The introduction by Professor Rowley provides a short overview of the book and identifies key insights that permeated the bounds of economics and political science and created an enduring nexus between the two sciences. Part I of qThe Calculus of Consentq establishes the conceptual framework of the book's subject; part II defines the realm of social choice; part III applies the logic developed in part II to describe a range of decision-making rules, most notably, the rule of simple majority; while part IV explores the economics and ethics of democracy.Charles K. Rowley is Duncan Black Professor of Economics at George Mason University and a Senior Fellow of the James M. Buchanan Center for Political Economy at George Mason University. He is also General Director of the Locke Institute.The entire series includes: Volume 1 qVirginia Political Economyq Volume 2 qThe Calculus of Consentq Volume 3 qThe Organization of Inquiryq (November 2004) Volume 4 qThe Economics of Politicsq (February 2005) Volume 5 qThe Rent-Seeking Societyq (March 2005) Volume 6 qBureaucracyq (June 2005) Volume 7 qThe Economics and Politics of Wealth Redistributionq (July 2005) Volume 8 qThe Social Dilemma: Of Autocracy, Revolution, Coup d'Etat, and Warq (December 2005) Volume 9 qLaw and Economicsq (December 2005) Volume 10 qEconomics without Frontiersq (January 2006)aquot;The Calculus of Consent, aquot; the second volume of Liberty Funda#39;s aquot;The Selected Works of Gordon Tullock, aquot; is a reprint edition of the ground-breaking economic classic written by two of the worlda#39;s preeminent economists--Gordon Tullock and ...
