What are some great, accessible books that would allow me to learn more about social choice theory without having to become an economist? I am thinking something along the likes of James Gleick's "popular science" Information Theory book, but for social choice theory.
Arrow's impossibility theorem

and the Gibbard-Satterthwaite theorem
fascinate me, but not being an economist and not having time to dedicate myself to becoming one, I am stuck following links in brief Wikipedia articles when I want to procrastinate at work (like now).
I would like to learn a little more about the history, results, and implications of what is known in that field.
