About this product
- DescriptionFormal Models of Domestic Politics offers the first unified and accessible treatment of canical and important new formal models of domestic politics. Intended for students in political science and ecomics who have already taken a course in game theory, the text covers eight classes of models: electoral competition under certainty and uncertainty, special interest politics, veto players, delegation, coalitions, political agency and regime change. Political ecomists, comparativists and Americanists alike will find models here central to their research interests. The text assumes mathematical kwledge beyond basic calculus, with an emphasis placed on clarity of presentation. Political scientists will appreciate the simplification of ecomic environments to focus on the political logic of models; ecomists will discover many important models of politics published outside of their discipline; and both instructors and students will value the numerous classroom-tested exercises.
