Go Spotting: Go and International Relations Theory

Former AGA Board Chair David Weimer tipped us off about a forthcoming book with a go-themed cover. International Relations Theory, The 2014.12.23_Int-relations-book-coverGame-Theoretic Approach is by Andrew H. Kydd, a colleague of Weimer’s in the Political Science Department at the Robert M. LaFollette School of Public Affairs in Madison, WI. “Written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this is the first textbook on international relations theory to take a specifically game theoretic approach to the subject,” according to the book’s description on the Cambridge University Press website. “International relations theory is presented and analysed using simple games, which allow students to grasp the concepts and mechanisms involved with the rationalist approach without the distraction of complicated math.” The book is due out in March.
