First printing. xiii, 242 pp; 170 figs. Original cloth. Very good, in dust jacket. 'In 1951, when K. J. Arrow published his celebrated book 'Social Choice and Individual Values' (containing his famous theorem and related work, for which he was awarded the Nobel prize for economics), he had little awareness that the subject had been dealt with before. However, Duncan Black, another modern pioneer of social choice (who independently discovered some of the same results as Arrow), unearthed earlier work on this topic, including (inter alia) contributions by Condorcet, Laplace, and Dodgson (a.k.a. Lewis Carroll, author of the Alice books). See Black, 'The Theory of Committees and Elections', Cambridge UP 1958 (republished 1987 by Kluwer)' (Moshe' Machover, Department of Philosophy, King's College, London; please ask for on-line source). 'Duncan Black was an economist who revived interest in using mathematical tools to study voting systems. Black's book The Theory of Committees and Elections revived significant interest in using mathematical tools to study election questions' (American Mathematical Society Web site). 'Ends with a fascinating survey of ancients, Borda, Condorcet, & Dodgson' (please ask for on-line source). 'Arigorous analysis of the logic of voting based on elementary arithmetic and geometry' (please ask for on-line source). 'Dodgson is also remembered for his pamphlets and letters on 'Proportional Representation,' conveniently collected and assessed by Duncan Black in The Theory of Committees and Elections (1958)' (please ask for on-line source).
