This new text offers a wealth of diverse, intriguing applications to show where game theory works, where it doesn’t, and why. Accessible to all college students, the book conveys the power, appeal, and beauty of game-theoretic logic, emphasizing problem solving over answers. Especially relevant for majors in economics/business and political science/international relations.
