The Essential John Nash, 9780691096100 (0691096104), Princeton Press, 2007

"John Nash's creative work in game theory has of course had the most profound influence on both its mathematics and its practical applications in economics. It is very good to see his work in this area joined with his other mathematical contributions in a single volume, to give a more rounded perspective."--Kenneth J. Arrow, 1972 Nobel Laureate in Economics

"These papers are among the most important original contributions to mathematics of the twentieth century. They have been extremely influential and their influence continues to grow."--Joseph J. Kohn, Princeton University

"John Nash has attracted enormous popular interest over the past few years. In many ways, the notion of equilibrium in game theory that bears his name is the central concept in game theory, which has led to a revolution in the field of economics. This book, by bringing together Nash's work in game theory and in mathematics, will allow readers to appreciate the scope of his work."--David M. Kreps, Stanford Business School
