Summary:Beyond Conventional Economics presents new original work from leading scholars on the interface between the individual and political and social institutions.

A number of chapters also explore the limits of individually rational behaviour in political decision making--some by challenging the orthodox content of the idea of rationality, others by providing fresh views on the operation of political processes
