Game Theory: A critical text
The second edition of this book is more textbooky than the first. This provides a more comprehensive treatment of game theory, and it also gets away from one of the problems of the first edition which was that the discussions began to all look the same after a while. However, the changes do make the book less suitable for those who are interested in the discussions, rather than the technical details. It would be a pity if this meant that fewer people read the book as the discussions are very useful, not just for those interested in game theory or the rationality of human behaviour, but also as an indication of the current status of ideas such as postmodernism and marxism, and indeed of sociology itself.
