Provides an overview of rational choice perspectives in the discipline of political science. Reviews rational choice models and provides examples of their application, in both their broad and narrow forms, in which this relates to the level of preference specification. Considers the relationship of rational choice analysis to institutions and institutional change. Predicts future boundary developments in the application of rational choice perspectives, by extending the range and assumptions built into rational choice models.
