1.0 out of 5 stars Based on little factual evidence, 14 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Men, Women and War (Hardcover)
Time after time Creveld make slanted comments based on little, if any factual evidence. He simply appears to be pushing a particular agenda

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book, 30 Oct. 2012
Enjoyed this text hugely. Have never read anything about game theory before but Axelrod explains his ideas and arguments clearly and succinctly. Was fascinated to see how his thesis has applications in every corner of the world, from biological micro-organisms to WWI trench warfare. I found it particularly interesting as I am now studying global environmental politics. It offers an interesting rebuttal to the theory of 'The Tragedy of the Commons'. A must read for all.
