Is it self-interest or public interest that dominates Western politics? The author examines more than 200 studies of democracy in action from 17 countries and argues that the prevalent theory that egoism rules simply does not match the facts.

`This series provides a welcome and much needed boost for a more analytical and theoretically informed treatment of west European politics. Professor Patrick Dunleavy

`thorough and balanced'
Political Studies

'The book is an extended literature review but, as the judgements indicate, a review with a bite. It is written in an accessible and non-technical style, and will prove invaluable in introducing students on comparative politics courses to the world of rational choice. The sharp judgements it offers also make it an independently valuable addition to the literature.'
Michael Moran, Victoria University of Manchester, West European Politics, Vol. 15, No. 1, January 1992

`The strengths of this fine, concise book are the diversity of areas covered and the author's awareness of the North American, European, and Japanese literatures on all of these topics. I would strongly recommend it to the participants in any of these debates.'
Comparative Politics

`This book may certainly be useful for students who need an introductory review of some important empirical literature. In this sense, it could be a very useful text for an upper-level undergraduate course in empirical political behaviors or political philosophy.'
Public Choice

`useful for both students and beginners who want a first contact with the problem and its classic literature'
