Abstract

This paper demonstrates the significant and extensive impact of W. H. Riker's works on the study of political science and public choice. We provide a citation analysis, peer reviews, and commentaries from former colleagues and students. The citation analysis shows that Riker's work has been cited more than 3700 times by over 2000 different scholars in more than 500 different journals. Peers, former colleagues and students highly respected him as a scholar and a person. Riker's most significant intellectual contributions include using game theory to analyze political behavior and incorporating rational interest theory as a basis for the scientific study of politics.
