Book Review Abstract
Cade Massey of University of Pennsylvania reviews, "Schelling's Game Theory: How to Make Decisions" by Robert V. Dodge . The Econlit abstract of this book begins: "Explores Thomas Schelling's contributions to the field of rational strategic analysis and game theory, focusing on content from his Harvard University course on rational choice, bargaining, and strategy. Focuses on the Schelling approach to strategic thinking and decision making; strategies and tactics; models as metaphors for what decisions do; the prisoner's dilemma, competition, and cooperation; individual decisions and group agreement; decisions that mix and sort populations and decisions based on randomization; and a case study of the Cuban Missile crisis. Dodge is retired from teaching social studies at the Singapore American School. Index."
