Description - Risk, Ambiguity and Decision by Isaac Levi

Risk, Ambiguity and Decision , is a sophisticated and detailed elaboration of the position originally presented in Ellsberg's much-discussed, ground breaking article, 'Risk, Ambiguity, and the Savage Axioms'. In this cogently argued book, Ellsberg mounts a powerful and influential challenge to the dominant theory of rational decision, and opens new fruitful lines of investigation whose lessons still have not been fully assimilated.

Author Biography - Isaac Levi

Daniel Ellsberg was a strategic analyst with the RAND Corporation, and a defense department and state department official who served in Vietnam. He later revealed to the U.S. Senate and the press the Pentagon Papers, a 7,000 page top secret study of U.S. decision making in Vietnam from 1945 to 1968. For this he faced a trial and a sentence of 115 years in prison, but all charges were dismissed on grounds of gross governmental misconduct against him, which led to the conviction of a number of White House aids and figured in the impeachment proceedings against President Nixon.
