First words
Preface -- This book attempts to communicate the central ideas and results of game theory and related decision-making models unencumbered by their technical mathematical details: thus, for example, almost no proofs are included. By laying bare the main structure of the theory -- its assumptions and conclusions, its deficiencies and aspirations -- we hope that the book will serve as a useful critical introduction to the theory and a guide to the literature.
