Book: Strategy: An Introduction to Game Theory (Third Edition)
Publisher: W W Norton
Game theory has become an enormously important field of study. It is now a vital methodology for researchers and teachers in many disciplines, including economics, political science, biology, and law. This book provides a thorough introduction to the subject and its applications, at the intermediate level of instruction. It is designed for the upper-division game theory courses that are offered in most undergraduate economics programs and also serves graduate students in economics, political science, law, and business who seek a solid and readable introduction to the theory. The book can be a primary or secondary source for graduate courses that have a significant game-theoretic component.
The perfect balance of readability and formalism.
