(ed): Anarchy, state, and public choice. New Thinking in Political Economy Cheltenham: Edward Elgar, 2005. x + 239 Pages. $117 (hardcover) Gary Chartier Published online: 27 August 2014 Springer Science+Business Media New York 2014 This is an excellent book. Edward Stringham has collected a set of very helpful essays exploring the economics of bottom-up social organization—of anarchy. He includes a set of contributions originally made to two symposia in the early 1970s, generally critical of anarchy as a social ideal, linking most with contemporary rejoinders. “Public choice” figures in the title for at least two reasons. The founders of public choice economics, James Buchanan and Gordon Tullock, were among the contributors to the original symposia, both expressing doubts about the viability of anarchy. And, ironi- cally, a number of the authors of the newer essays in the volume, frequently students of Buchanan and Tullock, are doubtful that their mentors have taken with sufficient seriousness the implications of public choice theory for the merits of top-down social organization (though their arguments for anarchy do not depend narrowly on public choice foundations). For Winston Bush, anarchy would be characterized by predation. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Review of Austrian Economics Springer Journals
