About the Author:

Anthony Downs, Senior Fellow, The Brookings Institution, US

Review:

`Anthony Downs is one of the outstanding thinkers of our times. In an age and country where the title of intellectual has become almost a term of abuse, he has demonstrated the power of ideas in the world of practical affairs. His work focuses on problems, and cuts through disciplinary boundaries. It is informed by a concern to improve the human condition, and a commitment to rigorous analysis of how this can be achieved. The papers in this collection, from his classic work on the economic theory of democracy, to his writings on urban policy and property markets, provide a summary of forty years of a career that has decisively shaped the way in which we think about public affairs.' -- Michael Keating, University of Western Ontario, Canada `Anthony Downs is one of the founding fathers of modern public choice theory. His seminal contributions, some of which are reprinted in these volumes, remain an important source of inspiration for today's scholars. Reading the articles reprinted in these two books will be a highly rewarding experience, readers will be reminded of the fundamental issues in the political-economic analysis of democracy and the powerful insights which are obtained from an application of this approach to policy problems. Downs is a master analyst and practitioner and a powerful communicator. Those coming fresh to the subject will be greatly stimulated by his writings.' -- Peter Jackson, University of Leicester, UK
