The class of special majority rules consists of all p-majority rules, where p is greater than half and less than one. p-majority rule is defined by: An alternative x is socially at least as good as another alternative y iff the number of individuals preferring y over x is less than or equal to p multiplied by the number of individuals nonindifferent between x and y. This chapter is concerned with the derivation of conditions for transitivity and quasi-transitivity under the class of special majority rules.
