The theory of games, first given a rigorous formulation by von Neumann in 1928, is a subfield of mathematics and economics that models situations in which individuals compete and cooperate with each other. Selections in this volume range from classical and contemporary journal articles to news clippings and portions of popular novels. Important criterion for the selection of articles is their brevity and the fact that they are well written. Throughout, Professor Rasmusen ties the material together with extensive notes and commentary. Appendices at the end cover "writing and modelling" in economics and appropriate mathematical concepts.
