Description - Fair Representation by Michel L. Balinski
The issue of fair representation has taken center stage as U.S. congressional districts are reapportioned as a result of the 2000 census. Using U.S. history as a guide, the authors develop a theory of fair representation that establishes various principles for a fair allocation of congressional seats.
