Theory of Games and Economic Behavior: 60th Anniversary Commemorative Edition (Princeton Classic Editions)
Theory of Games and Economic Behavior: 60th Anniversary
This is the classic work upon which modern-day game theory is based. What began more than sixty years ago as a modest proposal that a mathematician and an economist write a short paper together blossomed, in 1944, when Princeton University Press published Theory of Games and Economic Behavior. In it, John von Neumann and Oskar Morgenstern conceived a groundbreaking mathematical theory of economic and social organization, based on a theory of games of strategy. Not only would this revolutionize economics, but the entirely new field of scientific inquiry it yielded--game theory--has since been widely used to analyze a host of real-world phenomena from arms races to optimal policy choices of presidential candidates, from vaccination policy to major league baseball salary negotiations. And it is today established throughout both the social sciences and a wide range of other sciences. This sixtieth anniversary edition includes not only the original text but also an introduction by Harold Kuhn, an afterword by Ariel Rubinstein, and reviews and articles on the book that appeared at the time of its original publication in the New York Times, tthe American Economic Review, and a variety of other publications. Together, these writings provide readers a matchless opportunity to more fully a...

Morrissey Scanned!: Landscapes of the Mind: 20th Anniversary Commemorative Edition
Morrissey Scanned!: Landscapes of the Mind: 20th Anniversary
In 1995, David Bret published ‘Landscapes of the Mind’, his ground breaking first biography of Morrissey, as a solo entertainer. Twenty years on, the book has been reissued to be read and enjoyed by a new generation of fans, no less fervent in their admiration of the Mancunian legend than when he was frontman with The Smiths, arguably the most influential band of the 1980s. Twenty years on, despite constant scrutiny from a critical and frequently hostile press, Morrissey remains just as impressively mysterious and aloof, while still maintaining a unique, unerring ability to communicate. Through in depth interviews with the singer-songwriter’s friends and members of his entourage David Bret provides a warm, intimate portrait of this undisputed hero and multi-faceted enigma.
