Beschreibung

This book provides an evaluation of 18 voting procedures in terms of the most important monotonicity-related criteria in fixed and variable electorates. All voting procedures studied aim at electing one out of several candidates given the voters' preferences over the candidates. In addition to (strict) monotonicity failures, the vulnerability of the procedures to variation of the no-show paradoxes is discussed. All vulnerabilities are exemplified and explained. The occurrence of the no-show paradoxes is related to the presence or absence of a Condorcet winner. The primary readership of this book are scholars and students in the area of social choice.

Dan Felsenthal  is emeritus professor of political science at the University of Haifa. Currently he is also Research Associate at the Centre for the Philosophy of Natural and Social Science, London School of Economics and Political Science. His main research areas are measurement of voting power, voting theory and voting behavior, social choice theory, and various applications of game theory to politics. He has published many papers on these subjects as well as two books: Topics in Social Choice: Sophisticated Voting, Efficacy, and Proportional Representation (New York: Praeger, 1990), and (jointly with Moshé Machover) The Measurement of Voting Power: Theory and Practice, Problems and Paradoxes (Cheltenham, UK: Edward Elgar Publishing Ltd., 1998). In addition, he edited (jointly with Moshé Machover) the book Electoral Systems: Paradoxes, Assumptions, and Procedures (Berlin Heidelberg: Springer, 2012). Email: msdanfl@mail.huji.ac.il
