How can one succeed in a world of selfish people ? This is the question at the heart of the work of Robert Axelrod because if cooperation is the social cement of life, it is also one of its greatest mysteries. Basing his analysis on Game theory, in addition to the trench warfare of 1914-1918, the behaviour of legislative bodies, or international negotiations, Robert Axelrod explores the reasons, in turn simple and surprising, which allows cooperation to take hold even in the worst situations. Strategists, negotiators, decision makers, managers, social reformers, people motivated by common sense, honesty or equally dishonesty everyone will find food for thought in the pages of this book, which is already considered as a classic. An expert in Game theory, Robert Axelrod teaches Political Sciences at the University of Michigan, in the United States.
