Nobel Laureate Economist. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences in 2005 for his study of game theory, which examines mathematical models of conflict and cooperation between rational people. He went to college at the University of California, Berkeley and received his PhD in Economics from Harvard in 1951. He worked for the government from 1948 to 1953 and then went to work at Yale University. In 1958 he joined the faculty at Harvard University and remained there until 1990. In 1960, he wrote the book “The Strategy of Conflict”, which pioneered the study of bargaining and strategic behavior in what he refers to as "conflict behavior". In 1990 he left Harvard and went to work at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy and Department of Economics. In 1993 he was awarded the Award for Behavior Research Relevant to the Prevention of Nuclear War from the National Academy of Sciences. He also received an honorary doctorate from Yale University in 2009 as well as an honorary degree from the University of Manchester. He was awarded the 2005 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, along with Robert Aumann, for "having enhanced our understanding of conflict and cooperation through game-theory analysis". His other books included "Arms and Influence" (1966) and "Micromotives and Macrobehavior" (1978).
