A Positive Political Theory Primer is designed to introduce
students to the application of game theory to modeling political
processes. This accessible text covers the essential aspects of
game theory while keeping the reader constantly in touch with why
political science as a whole would benefit from considering this
method. Examining the very phenomena that power political
machineries--elections, legislative and committee processes, and
international conflict, the book attempts to answer fundamental
questions about their nature and function in a clear, accessible
manner. Included at the end of each chapter is a set of exercises
designed to allow students to practice the construction and
analysis of political models. Although the text assumes only an
elementary-level training in algebra, students who complete a
course around this text will be equipped to read nearly all of the
professional literature that makes use of game theoretic analysis.
Each chapter also contains suggestions for further reading for
those students who wish to broaden their learning and expertise.
