This book presents the definitive exposition of 'prospect theory', a compelling alternative to the classical utility theory of choice. Building on the 1982 volume, Judgement Under Uncertainty, this book brings together seminal papers on prospect theory from economists, decision theorists, and psychologists, including the work of the late Amos Tversky, whose contributions are collected here for the first time. While remaining within a rational choice framework, prospect theory delivers more accurate, empirically verified predictions in key test cases, as well as helping to explain many complex, real-world puzzles. In this volume, it is brought to bear on phenomena as diverse as the principles of legal compensation, the equity premium puzzle in financial markets, and the number of hours that New York cab drivers choose to drive on rainy days. Theoretically elegant and empirically robust, this volume shows how prospect theory has matured into a new science of decision making.

Sabrina simply wanted a normal life. Raised by an emotionally unstable mother and a father who was an angry and violent drunk, Sabrina spent most of her young life feeling alone and scared. Her older brother, Brad, was her only ally as the two endured this difficult life together. When her family moved to a small town in Oklahoma, Sabrina lost the safety she felt with her old friends. However, she and Brad soon became close with Samantha and Joe, two local kids that gave them the support they so desperately needed. After a while, Sabrina and Brad faced their parents and discussed the ways in which they hurt them. Their parents eventually recognized the error of their ways and vowed to be more responsible and loving parents. Freedom Choice: A Book That Allows You to Consider Your Options is ideal for middle school aged children who suffer similar emotional turmoil. Through witnessing the healing of Sabrina, children are able to begin their own healing process and overcome any obstacles they face. Carla Worley sees the affects of abuse on a daily basis through her work as a counselor. Her desire to help people cope with abuse inspired her to reach out to children all over the world through this unique combination of fiction and therapy. She is currently working on her next book, which tackles another emotional issue that children face today.

The Choice for Europe

The creation of the European Union arguably ranks among the most extraordinary achievements in modern world politics. Observers disagree, however, about the reasons why European governments have chosen to co- ordinate core economic policies and surrender sovereign perogatives. This text analyzes the history of the region's movement toward economic and political union. Do these unifying steps demonstrate the pre-eminence of national security concerns, the power of federalist ideals, the skill of political entrepreneurs like Jean Monnet and Jacques Delors, or the triumph of technocratic planning? Moravcsik rejects such views. Economic interdependence has been, he maintains, the primary force compelling these democracies to move in this surprising direction. Politicians rationally pursued national economic advantage through the exploitation of asymmetrical interdependence and the manipulation of institutional commitments.

An account of the overlapping effects of social class, ethnicity and gender in the process of choosing which university to attend. The shift from an elite to a mass system has been accompanied by much political rhetoric about widening access, achievement-for-all and meritocratic equalisation.
