- Rich Mullins: A Devotional Biography: An Arrow Pointing to Heaven
- During his life, Rich Mullins challenged the sensibilities of what it means to follow Jesus in today's world, and now in his death, he challenges all to build upon his legacy of joy, compassion, brokenness, unblinking honesty, and wonder of an Awesome God
- The Theory of Social Choice (Princeton Legacy Library)
- One fundamental premise of democratic theory is that social policy, group choice, or collective action should be based on the preferences of the individuals in the society, group, or collective.

- An experiment in approval voting
- This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work.
My early work focussed on expected utility theory (von Neumann & Morgenstern, Savage) and decision theory, including axiomatisations, analyses with incomplete information, and multivariate models. This led naturally to social choice theory in the late 1960s, and during the 1970s my research was divided about evenly between individual decision theory and social choice theory. These interests continue today, and in the early 1980s have involved concentrated efforts on new nonlinear utility theories and the practical assessment of alternative election schemes.
Concurrently, I have become more interested in several areas of discrete mathematics, includ
ing partially ordered sets and graph theory. These latter interests threaten to dominate the earlier interests but have not yet succeeded in doing so.
