Bilateral bargaining situations are of great importance in reality. Traditional microeconomics, however, make cognitive and motivational assumptions of subjects' full rationality that are revealed as being unrealistic by a growing number of experimental investigations. The present book adds an important contribution to the understanding of principles of boundedly rational behavior by directly observing groups of subjects in a decision situation and videotaping their discussions. A very important result of the book is that the behavior of subjects is guided by aspirations regarding the final outcome. The levels of aspirations are influenced by prominence and different forms of the equity principle resulting in several fairness norms as to the allocation of the amount of money to be divided. Another important feature of the book stems from the analysis of break off discussions and enables a motivational explanation of the emergence of breakdowns in bargaining.

Industry Reviews

"A thorough exposition of the current state of applying equivariant cohomology to quantum field theory. [...] If one takes the attitude that this material may make mathematical sense within the next fifty years, the book can be appreciated as a well-organized exposition of the topological content of quantum field theory from a physics viewpoint." (Mathematical Reviews 2002a)
