A CONCISE FORMAT THAT USES GRAPHICS TO ILLUMINATE KEY PRINCIPLES

Each "game" is presented across a two-page spread. The first page uses a story from contemporary politics and explains how game theory helps us understand it. The facing page depicts the game graphically. Each "game" concludes with a summary of the basic principle and a puzzle for further thought.

A PRIMER ON BASIC GAMES, A GUIDE TO READING GRAPHS, AND A FULL GLOSSARY

The first sections of Political Games provide students with the basics of game theory and how to read the graphs that appear throughout the book. Glossary terms are bolded throughout and carefully defined at the end of the book.
