Rs construct a provocative theory on the selection of leaders and present specific formal models from Logic of Political PDFEPUB #228 which their central claims can be deduced They show how political leaders allocate resources and how institutions for selecting leaders create incentives for leaders to pursue good and bad public policy They also extend the model to explain the conseuences of war on political survival Thro I first read this book as a first semester graduate student in an IR and Comparative hybrid course At the time I didn't totally understand it the methodology the terminology practically all of it was beyond my comprehension at that point However I just picked up The Logic of Political Survival and reviewed it for comprehensive exams I found this book absolutely invaluable to the understanding of both the demoratic peace theory and political institution building The selectorate model proposed by BDM et al is absolutely comprehensive and seems almost without rival It just explains so much and yet is inevitably so simple This is a must read for any comparative politics or international relations scholar and come to think of it could very well be applied to public administration political theory or American politics as well BDM et al make a convincing case for structural arguments of both comparative politics and the democratic peace which in my opinion are without parallel

The Logic of Political SurvivalUghout the book they provide illustrations from history ranging from ancient Sparta to Vichy France and test the model against statistics gathered from cross national data The authors explain the political intuition underlying their theory in nontechnical language reserving formal proofs for chapter appendixes They conclude by presenting policy prescriptions based on what has been demonstrated theoretically and empirical A classic rational choice manifesto on state leadership and behavior Bad leaders tend to be successful than good ones The evidence is based on a formal model called selectorate theory A good read but obviously unspecified as a model Wouldn't be surprised if his results were considered spurious within the next ten years
