Assuming no prior knowledge, this widely-used and critically-acclaimed text provides a clear introduction to, and uniquely fair-minded assessment of, Rational Choice approaches. The substantially revised, updated and extended new edition includes more substantial coverage of game theory, collective action, 'revisionist' public choice, and the use of rational choice in International Relations.
This book introduces and applies the economic way of thinking to public policy and public administration. It provides a non-technical introduction and assumes no prior economic or mathematical training but looks closely at the methodological and normative assumptions underlying economic analysis. It provides a deep understanding of the method than a simple technical presentation would allow. After introducing the basic assumptions of the economic method, the book considers the analysis of market failure, the role of government in a market economy, behavioural economics, bargaining in government, bureaucracy, interest groups, and levels of government. By providing a balanced introduction to and overview of economic approaches to government, the book will be useful to undergraduate and postgraduate students in public administration and public policy, as well as academics and practitioners in these fields interested in the application of the economic way of thinking.
A tentative peace between Israel and Palestine has been brokered by
the United States. But the Taskforce--a clandestine team operating
outside of US law to protect the country from terrorism--hears of
an assassination attempt on the American envoy sent to solidify the
treaty. The Taskforce must devote every resource to saving his
life--and preventing another bloody outbreak of violence.
Taskforce operators Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill are used to
putting their lives at risk, but this time it's Jennifer's brother
who is in danger. As an investigative reporter working on the
Mexican drug cartels, Jack Cahill has unknowingly gotten caught
between two rival groups. His desperate call to his sister is his
last before he's kidnapped.
