Covering all the essential topics for undergraduate courses, this is the ideal student introduction to game theory. The book sets out the basics of the subject in a non-technical way. All discussion and explanation is clear, well structured, and entirely accessible to students of both economics and business. In addition to describing and explaining the basic theory, Game Theory uses illustrations and examples to show its application to realistic, topical, and interesting problems-ranging from strategic decision-making within companies to international environmental policy-making. The book also features exercises with accompanying solutions to allow the student to check progress throughout the course, and a guide to further reading at the end of each chapter.

Industry Reviews

This book is an interesting contribution to the growing number of books on Game Theory and its economic applications. Mathematical prerequisites are minimal and the level of technicality is low. What distinguishes this book from others at this level is the choice of applications: oligopoly theory, macroeconommics, trade theory, and environmental economics...it will be useful both as an introductory text book and as supplementary reading for intermediate courses in macroeconomics and game theory./Jurgen Eichberger Universitat des Saarlandes/ The Economic Journal September 1998. Provides an introduction to basic game theory concepts and illustrates how these have been applied to a diverse range of economic issues./journal of Economic Literature Volume 36, no.3, September 1998.
