1 Review
Written in a crisp and approachable style, Games and Information: An Introduction to Game Theory uses simple modelling techniques and straightforward explanations to provide students with an understanding of game theory and information economics. The third edition brings the text totally up-to-date. New topics include price discrimination, mechanism design, and value uncertainty in auctions. Other chapters have been extensively reorganized or rewritten.

Two of the most novel features of the new edition are not contained within its covers. One is the website at which includes answers to problems posed in the text, new questions and answers, and various supplementary materials. The other is a new book, "Readings in Games and Information" (also from Blackwell Publishers), which contains hard-to-locate scholarly articles, news clippings, and cartoons arranged to correspond with the chapters of the text.

The book will be an indispensable tool for undergraduates studying advanced microeconomics and of considerable interest to graduates, lecturers and researchers of game theory and information economics.
