Book Description
Striking an appropriate balance of mathematical and analytical rigor, Strategy and Conflict: A NonTechnical Introduction to Game Theory teaches by example. While Game Theoretic principles are the same across the board, learners typically relate better to examples from their own fields, and McCain provides illustrations everyone can relate to. In addition, the book is organized along the lines of the Karplus Learning Cycle, making it appealing to readers with contrasting learning styles.  This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This book serves as an introduction to game theory for students with no prior game theory knowledge, or with limited background in economics and mathematics. It is specifically designed to provide an intuitive and accessible interdisciplinary approach to game theory, while simultaneously exploring cooperative games, repeated play, correlated equilibrium, and a range of applications.

Game Theory: An Open Access Textbook (Giacomo Bonanno)
This book is an introduction to Game Theory. Accessible to anybody with minimum knowledge of mathematics and no prior knowledge of game theory, yet it is also rigorous and includes several proofs.

Introduction to Game Theory: a Discovery Approach
This book includes an exploration of the ideas of Game Theory through the rich context of popular culture. It contains sections on applications of the concepts to popular culture. It suggests films, television shows, and novels with themes from game theory.

Game Theory Relaunched (Hardy Hanappi)
The game is on. Do you know how to play? Game Theory sets out to explore what can be said about making decisions which go beyond accepting the rules of a game. New simulation tools and network analysis have made game theory omnipresent these days.

Games of No Chance (Richard Nowakowski, editor)
A fascinating look at the mathematics behind games such as checkers, chess, Go, Nim, and NineMen Morris. This book deals with combinatorial games, that is, games not involving chance or hidden information.

Algorithmic Game Theory (Noam Nisan, et al)
This book covers many of the hottest area of useful new Game Theory research, introducing deep new problems, techniques, and perspectives that demand the attention of economists as well as computer scientists.

Logic and the Foundations of Game and Decision Theory
This book collects together revised papersoriginally presented at the 7th Conference onLogic and the Foundations of Game and DecisionTheory (LOFT). LOFT is a key venue forpresenting research at the intersection of logic,economics and computer science.

Magic Squares and Cubes (William Symes Andrews)
This book cover topics such as magic squares, magic cubes, the Franklin squares, magics and Pythagorean numbers, the theory of reversions, magic circles, spheres, and stars, and magic octahedroids, among other things.

Game Theory (Qiming Huang)
This book provides a powerful mathematical framework that can accommodate the preferences and requirements of various stakeholders in a given process as regards the outcome of the process.

More Games of No Chance (Richard J. Nowakowski)
This book by some of the top names in the field is a stateoftheart look at combinatorial games. give information helpful in playing or analyzing the games, and some go so far as to give explicit strategies for solving them.
