About This Item

Boulder, CO.: Westview Press, 1985. Comprehensive text presents detailed essays authored by leading academicians and scholars in honor of the four decades of the multidisciplinary international relations scholarship of Professor Harold Guetzkow. The first section of this text is organized around the idea that large scale simulation models are attempts to construct macroscopic theories about the way the world appears to work. The second major section is focused on what Guetzkow originally called "islands of theory", scholarship aimed at creating some island of theory, whether it relates to budgetary behavior or alliance shifts during war time. The final section focuses on the dichotomy between research and policy. Other topics include the use of simulation and organizational theory as a research and training device in international organizations; stochastic models of international behavior; standard techniques of causal analysis; open military simulations; nonstochastic simulation of conflict and cooperation processes; etc. 625 pgs. Frontispiece photograph of Harold Guetzkow. Publisher's stamp on front endpaper. Lower front corner slightly bumped. Gilt spine and front cover.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/ . Illus. by . 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
