302.13 BAL 132575
In Majority Judgment, Michel Balinski and Rida Laraki
argue that the traditional theory of social choice offers
no acceptable solution to the problems of how to elect,
to judge, or to rank. They find that the traditional
model -transforming the "preference lists" of individuals
into a "preference list" of society--is fundamentally
flawed in both theory and practice. Balinski and Laraki
propose a more realistic model. Drawing on insights from
wine, sports, music, and other competitions, Balinski and
Laraki argue that the question should not be how to
transform many individual rankings into a single
collective ranking, but rather, after defining a common
language of grades to measure merit, how to transform the
many individual evaluations of each competitor into a
single collective evaluation of all competitors.

This book give an overview of the thematic development of
peace research, which has become one of the most dynamic
and innovative areas of war and conflict studies. It deals
with such key issues in peace research as the causes of
war, conflict data, conflict diplomacy, non-violent
sanctions and third- party diplomacy. In this way, it
demonstrates how basic research can be conducted in
fields often seen as -unresearchable- and -too
complicated to deal with-. This volume shows that it is a
matter of developing definitions, creating valid measures
and finding ways of collecting information, recognising
that innovations of this kind require supportive research
environments. Furthermore, the results are not only
useful for the growth of research activity itself, but
for finding ways of dealing with actual conflicts.

quantifiers and develop direct reasoning operations on
these extended conceptual graphs, which could be mapped
to and from generally quantified natural language
statements. Third, it defines similarity subsumption
