Description: This book offers a novel approach to the analysis of democracy, and
an application of that approach to a variety of democratic
institutions, including elections, representation, political
parties and the separation of powers. Standard economic approaches
to politics concentrate on the design of institutions and the role
of individuals motivated by self-interest. The authors incorporate
a broader view of political motivation, assuming individuals are
moral as well as rational, and provide a wide-ranging discussion of
the design of democratic institutions.
