About this product
- DescriptionWritten for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this is the first textbook on international relations theory to take a specifically game-theoretic approach to the subject, and provide the material needed for students to understand the subject thoroughly, from its basic foundations to more complex models. International relations theory is presented and analysed using simple games, which allow students to grasp the concepts and mechanisms involved with the rationalist approach without the distraction of complicated mathematics. Chapter exercises reinforce key concepts and guide students to extend the models discussed. Drawing examples from international security, international political ecomy, and environmental negotiations, this introductory textbook examines a broad array of topics in international relations courses, including state preferences, rmal form games, bargaining, uncertainty and communication, multilateral cooperation, and the impact of domestic politics.
