FYI, don't miss the special issue of Public Choice, edited by Charles Rowley and Daniel Houser, on the Intellectual Legacy of Gordon Tullock. It contains serveral papers on the academic career and the diverse contributions of Gordon Tullock to various fields, such as constitutional political economy, bureaucracy, the problem of social cost, bioeconomics, experimental economics, and so on. It's a great way to become acquainted with, or to deepen one's knowledge of Tullock's work. For instance, Denis Mueller has a paper on "Gordon Tullock and Public Choice;" Robert Tollison on "The Economic Theory of Rent Seeking;" and Michael Reksulak and William Shughart II on "What Should Government Do?"Actually this special issue is for everyone, not just EC.
