The Evolution of Co-Operation by Robert Axelrod


The Evolution of Co-Operation by Robert Axelrod

How can co-operation emerge in a world of self-seeking egoists - whether superpowers, businesses, or individuals - when there is no central authority to police their actions? The author explores this central question, and its implications in this age of nuclear weapons and arms talks.
