About the Author

The late Gordon Tullock, formerly Professor of Law and Economics, George Mason University School of Law and Center for the Study of Public Choice, George Mason University, US


'The book features Professor Tullock's normal array of insights and gems of wisdom throughout. The thesis of the book, to view government through the prism of externalities, is intriguing and makes the book well worth reading.'- Daniel Sutter, Public Choice'The book can be commended for introducing a broad range of thought-provoking ideas in an accessible form. It is an easy read, but does not achieve (nor does it aspire to) the usual standards of academic rigour. It is in places retrospective and in others polemical. But all of it is entertaining.'- Gareth Myles, Economica'The book offers a nice introduction into public choice but still has enough in it to keep more advanced scholars interested. Well worth reading for anyone with even a modicum of interest in economics and/or politics in the most non-partisan sense.'- Phong Ngo, Economic Record'Tullock provides a readable account of public choice economics and the problems with collective decision making... Highly recommended.'- M. Steckbeck, Choice
