Editorial Reviews

Review

"Communal activities, with lots of emotional and symbolic content . . . serve a rational purpose, argues Michael Suk-Young Chwe. . . . [His] work, like his own academic career, bridges several social sciences."---Virginia Postrel, New York Times

"A welcome addition. . . .
Rational Ritual . . . can be understood and enjoyed by almost anyone interested in human interaction."---Vincent P. Crawford, Journal of Economic Literature

"This is a very compelling and original work. It is the best conceptual book I have read in economics in several years. It will have an immediate and enthusiastic readership in the social sciences and will make Chwe's name as an important thinker."
―Tyler Cowen, George Mason University

"
Rational Ritual is engaging, well organized, and well written. It brings together the tools of game theory and the issues posed within a wide variety of areas of contemporary social theory to address an important problem. Students and scholars in diverse academic disciplines―including political science, sociology, anthropology, and some areas of cultural studies―will find the book both relevant and accessible."―David Ruccio, University of Notre Dame

I teach game theory in the political science department at UCLA. I started watching Austen adaptations with my kids, which naturally led to reading the novels. The connections between Austen's novels and game theory were too strong and numerous to ignore, and thus I was moved to write "Jane Austen, Game Theorist."
