About the Author:

Wulf Gaertner is Professor of Economics at the University of Osnabrück in Germany and Fellow of Wissenschaftskolleg, Berlin. He has held several visiting posts at Tulane University, Harvard University, and the London School of Economics and Political Science, and was the recipient of the Ludwig Lachmann Research Fellowship from the LSE for the period 2006-2008. Professor Gaertner is also one of the managing editors of the journal, Social Choice and Welfare.

Review:

"Excellent...surely will become a standard reference for those wanting to be initiated in the field."

--Cambridge Journals November 2009

Review from previous edition: "Wulf Gaertner's book is both an excellent book of social choice theory and an outstanding primer that will surely soon become a standard reference. Students now have available to them an up-to-date and comprehensive introductory text in social choice theory,
fulfilling any expectations they may have in respect of clarity, rigor and the development of the subject...all economists, philosophers or mathematicians who might wish to work on the problem of aggregation or of justice, as well as any economist in general, would gain from this book a quick and
uncontroversial overview of the field"

--Antoinette Baujard, Social Choice and Welfare

"It will instantly become the best introductory (and a lot more) text on the subject. It can be used at the undergraduate level or beginning graduate level for courses on social choice, but also on social justice, public economics, welfare economics, political economy, positive political
theory, etc."

--Maurice Salles, Universite de Caen Basse-Normandie

"Professor Gaertner's book provides an admirable introduction to the theory of social choice. It combines rigorous reasoning with remarkable lucidity of exposition. Its coverage of topics is extensive. I envy the beginning student who learns social choice theory from Professor Gaertner's
book."

--Prasanta K. Pattanaik, Professor of Economics, University of California, Riverside
