Public choice theory - which deals with the extent to which politicians and political decision-making are controlled by special interests - is now regarded as an extremely useful theoretical base for studying the behaviour of political institutions. The 1986 Nobel Prize for Economics was awarded to James Buchanan for his pioneering work in public choice theory and there is an increasing number of research institutes devoted to research in public choice theory. The authors of this introduction to the subject are based in the two pre-eminent centres on both sides of the Atlantic - the Institute of Economic Affairs in London and the Centre for the Study of Public Choice at George Mason University, Virginia, USA. This book is a comprehensive introduction to the subject which examines its roots in economics, politics, voting systems and political theory. It assumes no previous knowledge of any of those subjects but provides a picture of a theory which is being exploited and appropriated increasingly for the enlightening contributions it can bring to other disciplines.
