Masterly theoretical treatment of one of the central problems in evolutionary biology - the evolution of social cooperation and conflict. Frank tackles the problem with an original combination of approaches: game theory, classical models of natural selection, quantitative genetics, and kin selection. He unites these with the best of economic thought: a clear theory of model formation and comparative statistics, the development of simple methods for analysing complex problems, and notions of information and rationality. Using this unique approach, Frank makes a major advance in understanding the foundation of social evolution.
