[Analysis of Behavioral Systems] describes a research strategy for analyzing behavioral systems. It is based on the experience of James Emshoff and others in their study of conflict behavior through laboratory gaming at the Wharton School. Emshoff contends, first, that analysis of behavioral systems must focus on understanding the reasons for behavior rather than simply on predicting behavior, and, second, that well-constructed laboratory experimentation will consistently result in a better understanding of behavior than will large-scale, real world quasi-experimental designs. The book is brief, to the point, and well organized. It should appeal primarily to those interested in gaming, conflict behavior, and applications of operations research to behavioral systems. 2 pp.
