Through an impressive mix of theoretical insight and empirical analysis, Peter Stone makes a provocative and compelling case for their value for social decision-making."--Jack Knight, Professor of Political Science and Law, Duke University


"An elegant and ultimately compelling book about the virtues of random selection in a wide range of contexts."--Geoffrey Brennan, Research School of Social Sciences, Australian National University


..".an excellent read."--Economics and Philosophy
