Human behavior often violates the predictions of rational choice theory. This realization has caused many social psychologists and experimental economists to attempt to develop an experimentally-based variant of game theory as an alternative descriptive model. The impetus for this book is the interest in the development of such a theory that combines elements from both disciplines and appeals to both.

The editors have brought together leading researchers in the fields of experimental economics, behavioral game theory, and social dilemmas to engage in constructive dialogue across disciplinary boundaries. This book offers a comprehensive overview of the new insights into the motivation of human behavior under a variety of naturally or artificially induced incentive structures that are emerging from their work. Amnon Rapoport--a pioneer and leader in experimental study and quantitative modeling of human decisions in social and interactive contexts--is honored.

Review:

The book contains well-researched subject and author indexes....the book is highly recommended....The individual chapters are generally of high quality, are well written, describe interesting research, and leave the reader with the impression of a field that is engaged in fruitful discussions.
Contemporary Psychology

After decades of splendid isolation from its sister social sciences, economics is beginning to engage meaningfully again with cognitive and social psychology. The current volume, a festschrift for Amnon Rapoport, is a landmark on the path of reengagement....Progress since the last comparable collection, Hogarth and Reder (1987), is remarkable....The present book reveals a very different and more progressive landscape....Anyone wishing to understand the state of the frontier between economics and psychology in the late 1990s should read this book.
