        The Calculus Of Consent.

      University of Michigan Press, Ann Arbor 1962 - First edition of the author's ground breaking work. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by James M. Buchanan. Light wear to the spine tips, else near fine in a very good price-clipped dust jacket that has a few small closed tears and a small chip to the bottom of the front panel. The Calculus Of Consent is one of the classic works from the discipline of public choice in economics and political science. The analytical approach of the authors is based on methodological individualism - collective action is composed of individual actions and on the rejection of any organic interpretation of the state. A purely individualistic conception of collectivity is maintained: the state is an artifact, created by men and thus subject to change and perfection. Buchanan and Tullock maintain that only constitutional changes, which can be shown to be in the interest of all interested parties can be judged as "improvements" and therefore consider conceptual unanimity as the only legitimate decision-making rule.
