Formal Models of Domestic Politics offers the first unified and accessible treatment of canonical and important new formal models of domestic politics. Intended for students in political science and economics who have already taken a course in game theory, the text covers eight classes of models: electoral competition under certainty and uncertainty, special interest politics, veto players, delegation, coalitions, political agency, and regime change. Political economists, comparativists, and Americanists alike will find the models here central to their research interests. The text assumes no mathematical knowledge beyond basic calculus, with an emphasis placed on clarity of presentation. Political scientists will appreciate the simplification of economic environments to focus on the political logic of models, economists will discover many important models of politics published outside of their discipline, and both instructors and students will value the numerous classroom-tested exercises.

Scott Gehlbach is Professor of Political Science, Lyons Family Faculty Fellow and Romnes Faculty Fellow at the University of Wisconsin, Madison; Senior Research Fellow at the International Center for the Study of Institutions and Development at the Higher School of Economics, Moscow; and Research Associate of the Center for Economic and Financial Research at the New Economic School in Moscow. A specialist in Russia, Professor Gehlbach has made fundamental contributions to the study of economic reform, authoritarianism and accountability in organizations and government. Known for employing a wide range of research methods in his work, Gehlbach is the author of the award-winning Representation through Taxation: Revenue, Politics, and Development in Postcommunist States (Cambridge Studies in Comparative Politics) and numerous articles in top journals, including the American Political Science Review, the American Journal of Political Science and The Journal of Politics. His work has been supported by two Fulbright-Hays Fellowships and many other grants. Professor Gehlbach received his PhD in political science and economics from the University of California, Berkeley.
