Adam Smith, radical and egalitarian : an interpretation for the twenty-first century by Iain McLean( )

23 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 2,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adam Smith (1723-90), the author of The Wealth of Nations, was not the promoter of ruthless laissez-faire capitalism that is still frequently depicted. His 'right-wing' reputation was sealed after his death, when it was unsafe to claim that an author may have influenced the French revolutionaries. But as the author, also, of The Theory of Moral Sentiments - which he probably regarded as his more important book - Smith sought a non-religious grounding for morals. This he found in the principle of sympathy, which should lead an impartial spectator to understand others' problems." "This book locates Smith in the Scottish Enlightenment; shows how the two books are perfectly consistent with one another; traces Smith's influence in France and the United States; and draws out the lessons that Adam Smith can teach policymakers in the 21st century."--Publisher

Rational choice and British politics : an analysis of rhetoric and manipulation from Peel to Blair by Iain McLean( )

22 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 1,581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study, by one of Britain's leading scholars of rational choice theory, explores the course of British parliamentary politics over the last 150 years. McLean marries an appealing combination of social science and analytical narrative history to the great turning points in British politics - the Repeal of the Corn Laws; the Victorian crisis of the Liberal and Conservative Parties; the Irish Question and Lloyd George's solution to it; the New Liberal origins of the welfare state; the politics of race and empire under Chamberlain and Powell; and the politics of 'there is no alternative' under Margaret Thatcher."--Jacket

State of the union : Unionism and the alternatives in the United Kingdom since 1707 by Iain McLean( )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first survey of Unionism, the ideology of most of the rulers of the United Kingdom for the last 300 years. Because it was taken so much for granted, it has never been properly studied. Now that we stand in the twilight of Unionism, it is possible to see it as it casts its long shadow over British and imperial history since 1707"--Jacket

Condorcet : foundations of social choice and political theory by Jean-Antoine-Nicolas de Caritat Condorcet( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Marquis de Condorcet (1743-94) was a founding father of social science. He believed that what he called the moral sciences could be studied by the same exacting methods as the natural sciences, and he developed many of the tools for doing so. Condorcet has had two quite unconnected reputations: as the doomed and foolish Enlightenment scholar, writing about the perfectibility of mankind while in hiding from the Terror that would shortly claim his own life; and as the incomprehensible founder of social choice, whose Essai of 1785 was not understood until the 1950s. This book shows that he was not so foolish, nor so incomprehensible, as even sympathetic treatments have made him sound. A long introduction uses the latest French and English sources to put his work into context, explains the unity of his thought and explicates his difficult arguments in probability theory and social choice. The extracts from Condorcet's work that follow are in two parts. Part I, 'The Theory of Voting', includes some extracts from the notorious Essai of 1785 but also later work which is more accessible and makes new points. Part II, 'Human Rights', shows Condorcet the passionate campaigner for rights for slaves and for women, and the American constitutionalist. His poignant 'Advice to his daughter' and 'Testament' show the spirit of a man who knew he was almost certain to be killed, and would never see his daughter again. Most of the works translated here have never appeared in English before. They will be an essential reference source for everybody working in social choice, the history of mathematics and human rights, and the Enlightenment

A mathematical approach to proportional representation : Duncan Black on Lewis Carroll by Duncan Black( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

`This is a book about a well-known writer, Lewis Carroll, and about a little-known subject, the theory of voting' (from the Editors' Introduction). This book has been edited from the manuscripts of the late Scottish economist Duncan Black. Shortly after the publication of The Theory of Committees and Elections Black started to collect material for papers and a book on Lewis Carroll's theory of proportional representation. Black's chapter plans made it clear that the book was to be in three parts, written by himself, followed by a reprint of Carroll's Principles of Parliamentary Representation and its main sources. Part I is biographical, introducing Lewis Carroll and giving relevant details of his life. Part II is Black's already published work on Lewis Carroll. Part III comprises the more detailed arguments about Carroll's reasoning, and Part IV contains reprints of rare original material on proportional representation by Carroll, James Garth Marshall, and Walter Baily. Taken together, the editors have provided a complete reference source for the theory of voting and proportional representation

The fiscal crisis of the United Kingdom by Iain McLean( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The system for allocating public expenditure to the nations and regions of the UK has never worked properly since the Union of 1707, when Scotland's compensation for joining the Union arrived in Edinburgh in carts guarded by dragoons. The Fiscal Crisis of the United Kingdom suggests how the system could be fixed, drawing lessons from Australia and Canada. It recommends a politician-proof Territorial Grants Commission on Australian lines, to follow the successful depoliticisation of monetary policy in the UK."--Jacket
