The book collects the best of Kotaro Suzumura’s work on social choice and welfare economics, adding a long introduction about his influences and several essays on the history of social choice… The volume will serve as a useful collection of Suzumura’s work for social choice theorists and graduate students interested in the field, especially because it includes material that is otherwise hard to obtain.—R. B. Emmett, Choice

Kotaro Suzumura is one of the foremost leaders of thought in rational decisions and social choice as well as the economics of welfare. The reach of his work is breathtaking, and I cannot think of anything that can beat this collection for its reach and profundity in exploring some of the most foundational issues in decision making, investigated at the highest level of analytical sophistication. The work is an inspiration as well as an intellectual feast.—Amartya Sen, Harvard University

Suzumura’s leading position as a scholar in the theory of individual and social choice, and in the understanding of the intellectual foundations of public choice, is assured. This book shows the arc of his development. It contains a deep comprehension of the issues involved, both in their technical aspects and in their philosophical foundations.—Kenneth J. Arrow, Stanford University
