364 pages | Springer; 2nd edition (September 5, 2008) | ISBN: 0387776435 | PDF | 1 Mb
This book teaches humanities majors the accessibility and beauty of discrete and deductive mathematics. It assumes no prior knowledge of either college-level mathematics or political science, and could be offered at the freshman or sophomore level. The book devotes one chapter each to a model of escalation, game-theoretic models of international conflict, political power, and social choice. The book contains exercises throughout.
Review of the first edition: “This book is well written and has much math of interest. While it is pitched at a non-math audience there is material here that will be new and interesting to the readers...” Sigact News
