The most comprehensive and encompassing treatment of this approach...[This] is the first nontechnical, modern introduction to how (noncooperative) game theory can be applied specifically to legal analysis...Game Theory and the Law is a user-friendly analysis of concrete, numerical examples, rather than a theoretical presentation of abstract concepts. The authors introduce and explain, with actual legal cases or hypotheticals, the salient issues of modern game theory. This breadth of coverage is remarkable. This is not just a textbook; it is also something of a research monograph, introducing many new models attributable to the authors alone. -- Peter H. Huang Jurimetrics Journal Game Theory and the Law is an important book. It is important in the sense that it will serve as a catalyst for an expanded use of game-theoretic models in the study of law. It will be a book that people will one day recognize as having had a considerable influence on its field. And it will receive the praise that accompanies such influence. Happily, such influence will be beneficial to the field of law and such praise will be richly deserved, because Game Theory and the Law is an extremely intelligent and thoughtful text...One of the features of the book that is most striking (and, for my part, most welcome) is the thoughtful and sensible manner in which they approach the use of game theory. Unlike many proponents of game-theoretic analysis, they do not present it as the only legitimate approach to social-scientific analysis. The authors present game theory as a powerful tool that can be used along with other approaches to enhance our understanding of the role of law in social life...The persuasiveness of their general argument for the utility of game theory derives from a combination of the power of their insights along with the sensibility of their analysis. The book is written in a clear, concise and interesting manner. Its bibliographic references render it a source book for additional research in both game theory and law. This is a book that should be read by scholars of law in particular and scholars of political behavior in particular. -- Jack Knight Law and Politics Book Review


This text applies the tools of game theory and information economics to advance the understanding of how laws work. Organized around the major solution concepts of game theory, the authors shows how such well-known "games" as the prisoner's dilemma, the battle of the sexes, beer-quiche and the Rubinstein bargaining game can illuminate many different kinds of legal problems. The organization of "Game Theory and the Law" serves to highlight the basic mechanisms at work and to lay out a natural progression in the sophistication of the game concepts and legal problems considered. "Game Theory and the Law" should serve as an accessible primer on game theory for non-specialists. Many of the models and ideas it sets forth, however, are new. The authors show how game theory offers ways of thinking about problems in anti-discrimination, environmental, labour and many other areas of law. The book makes few formal demands on the reader. The basic concepts of modern game theory are introduced without requiring mathematical tools beyond simple algebra, which is used sparingly.

It also contains a comprehensive glossary of legal and economic terms, ranging from the absolute priority rule to von Neumann-Morgenstern expected utility theory. It offers those interested in law a way of thinking about legal rules, and it shows to those interested in game theory a largely unexplored area in which its tools have many applications.

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Slacker79 am 1. Juni 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is a solid introduction both to game theoretic reasoning and its application in legal analysis. It does a nice job of serving two audiences: lawyers and legal scholars who want to see some game theory and how it can illuminate analysis of things like liability regimes, and game theorists/economists/formal political scientists who are interested in a novel application of game theory. (Well, I'm only the second audience, but it seems like the first would be well served also.)
The book is very verbal. I believe there are two equations in it, in all (but of course many game matrices). So for legal scholars it can be a useful introduction to what game theory has to say, but it can't give much guidance on how to build a model. Given the importance of spreading these ideas, the non-technical nature is probably a plus.
The authors deserve credit for covering a lot of ground in game theory, much of it seemingly impossible to understand without the math, with minimal technical investment. Most basic topics that might be covered in a graduate course for economists are treated -- albeit at an intuitive level, but one that is very understandable.
A couple drawbacks come to mind. First, the authors do not stress enough the knowledge assumptions behind Nash equilibrium. It requires not just that everyone be rational or that everyone know that everyone is rational. It requires *common knowledge* of rationality -- that everyone knows that everyone knows that everyone knows...(ad infinitum)...that everyone is rational. That is *much* stronger and more limiting than mutual knowledge of rationality, and it's important to understand what you ingest upon swallowing Nash equilibrium.

A pathbreaking work of importance and clarity 30. April 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book popularizes and extends a new approach (non-cooperative game theory) to the economic analysis of law. Readable and concise, this book is a must for students and scholars wishing to understand the ways in which legal rules can be usefully modeled as non-cooperative games. As a professor in the discipline, I am awed by the important and brilliant scholarship presented in this book with superb skill.

Could have been MUCH better 14. Januar 2011
Von Vahan D. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The problem I had with this book is the manner with which it was written.
It was written in a very assuming way, as if the authors believed you know
what they are talking about; this was awfully pretentious, since it's meant
to be an introduction as opposed to an improvement on prior knowledge.
Also, there were VERY confusing transitions. For instance, they would mention
something they were going to talk about, deviate and go off tangent for a
few pages, then start again on the topic with no clean modulation.
Varian has a few chapters in his Microeconomics book that makes many (but not
all) of the same points as this book, only he does it in a more illustrative,
easy to follow, and even exciting manner.
Not sufficiently rigorous 23. Oktober 2014
Von Rapid Logic - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
If you are a lawyer with some maturity as a practitioner, and you have had a formal course in game theory in a quantitative discipline, you will be bored reading this book and likely will gain very little. You are better off studying common knowledge and epistemic game theory.

Great analysis of common strategic behavior problems 26. Dezember 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a great example of how the rigor of game theory can give startling insights into outcomes of common situations. Although I'm no mathematician or economist, all business people are at some point required to base their decisions on how they think others will behave. This book provides some great frameworks for structuring that thought process.

Interesting read 30. Mai 2012
Von Bryan S. Wood - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have been very interested in game theory, and am working on the LSAT to go to law school, and so upon seeing the book I thought it would be interesting to read. I was right. it really helped me to understand some concepts that I hadn't thought of before, and gave me a different way to look at things.
