Our colleague Gordon Tullock

The new Liberty Fund edition of Gordon Tullock’s The Organization of Inquiry is out:

In this book, Tullock focuses attention on the organization of science, raising important questions about scientific inquiry and specifically about the problems of science as a social system. Tullock poses such questions as: how do scientists engage in apparently cooperative contributions in the absence of hierarchic organization and why are scientific contributions worthy, for the most part, of the public’s trust?

If you are fed up with publication lags, Gordon had the answer for that one too, circa 1980:

"Professor Gordon Tullock referees submissions to Public Choice himself and usually has a response in the mail within 48 hours."

See also Brad DeLong’s appreciation of Gordon. And here is a list of forthcoming volumes in the series.
