Preferences and Democracy features contributions from prominent North American and European scholars with up-to-date commentary and surveys of standard topics, including probabilistic voting, the convergence of political parties, and redistribution. New topics are addressed, including how political institutions provide bridges between demand and supply- how the political process in a democracy sometimes represses political demand. Preferences and Democracy addresses the important issue of how the democratic political process succeeds or fails in facilitating the expression of the political demands of the people. The book is a vital reference for students and specialists in economics and political science.
