Editorial Reviews

Review

This is one of the very best volumes of collected essays that I have ever encountered. Nearly all of the contributors are world-class scholars in their respective disciplines, and their essays here are generally excellent, unlike the throwaway pieces one usually finds in such collections. Richard Zeckhauser is to be applauded for his editorial courage in compiling this first-rate tribute to Thomas Schelling.

(Tyler Cowen, George Mason University)

The scholars represented in this impressive collection have contributed engaging essays from a wide variety of persepctives and disciplines. Most of the pieces were written specifically for this volume, with a clear attempt to make them accessible for a diverse audience.

(Baruch Fischhoff, Professor of Social and Decision Sciences, Professor of Engineering and Public Policy, Carnegie Mellon University)

Thomas Schelling's ideas continue to inspire elegant insights. This volume is no exception. The several polished gems it contains will be widely read for some time to come. Many of these essays are simply beautiful.

(Amihai Glazer, Professor of Economics, University of California)

It's really quite extraordinary how well the various authors have presented their material. I had not intended to read the entire volume, but these entries were so enticing and well-excuted that I ended up reading almost everything. Nearly everyone with an academic or policy interest in the behavioral sciences -- economics, psychology, political science, law, etc. -- will find a great deal here of substantive interest to his own speciality as well as informative inklins of how other specialties deal with the subject of strategic choice.

(Jack Hirshleifer, Professor of Economics, Univeristy of California)

Strategic behavior is too interesting and important to be left to game theorists. The authors of this book -- some of whom are and some of whom aren't -- bring the concepts to life with the work of pointed examples that Tom Schelling made famous. they really keep your attention.

(Robert Solow, Institute Professor, MIT)
