From the Inside Flap
"Sattenspiel and Lloyd do a first-rate job of making a lot of material accessible to a broad audience. They focus on a handful of examples and provide comprehensive insights. I found this book to be tightly and cogently written, supplying a level of detail that will be really useful for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers. It is one I would certainly recommend."--Andrew P. Dobson, Princeton University
