Bargaining is a ubiquitous feature of social and economic interactions.
The book pursues two main goals. From a methodological point of view, game theoretic models and agent-based models are comparatively analysed. This provides an insightful case study about the vices and virtues of both methods with regards to the trade-off between analytic rigour and descriptive detail. From a practical point of view, valuable insights can be drawn about different strategies’ success, fairness and efficiency. It is shown how those properties change with environmental circumstances.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn was one of the Cold War's most iconic writers. This book offers an in-depth analysis of his reception in the US, UK, and Germany before and after 1991. Elisa Kriza skillfully explores how Solzhenitsyn's work can be understood with the paradigm of witness literature and uncovers the dynamics behind the politicized reception of his writing.
From the mid-1980s onwards, Solzhenitsyn's popularity dwindled—was this for ideological reasons? What about the rumors linking him with Russian nationalism? This study does not shy away from stretching beyond anti-communism and touching more contentious subjects—such as anti-feminism, anti-Semitism, and revisionism—in Solzhenitsyn's work and reception.
Bringing Solzhenitsyn back from his 'critical exile' and redefining his work as memory culture, Kriza's book is a crucial scholarly intervention, unveiling the mechanism that can transform a controversial figure into a moral icon.
