"Emin Karagözoğlu and Kyle Hyndman have edited a book on bargaining, which is impressive in both its depth and breadth. Its theory chapters cover both the strategic approach and the axiomatic approach in bargaining theory. These chapters build on both classical/perfect rationality models as well as behavioral ones. However, the book goes far beyond theory and into methodologies such as lab and field experiments as well as the analysis of existing databases, reflecting on important applications in industrial organization and political economy. The chapter authors are leading scholars in economics and other disciplines, who have made important contributions in the field of bargaining. For those interested in the field, and especially graduate students and researchers, this book on bargaining is a bargain at any price."

Eyal Winter, Silverzweig Professor of Economics, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Andrew & Elizabeth Brunner Professor of Economics, Lancaster University

"Before reading this book, I thought that my knowledge of bargaining theory and evidence was up to date. Rarely have I been more wrong. I warmly recommend this fine collection of brand new surveys by top scholars from a wide range of disciplines."

Tore Ellingsen, Ragnar Söderberg Professor of Economics, Stockholm School of Economics

"This is a superb and wide-ranging overview of the current state of bargaining theory, its varied applications, new directions and future prospects. The vibrancy of the field and the breadth of applications are vividly on display in this expertly curated collection."

Dilip Abreu, Professor of Economics, New York University
