About the Books:
Gambling on War: Confidence, Fear, and the Tragedy of the First World War
The First World War left a legacy of chaos that is still with us a century later. Why did European leaders resort to war and why did they not end it sooner? Roger L. Ransom sheds new light on this enduring puzzle by employing insights from prospect theory and notions of risk and uncertainty. He reveals how the interplay of confidence, fear, and a propensity to gamble encouraged aggressive behavior by leaders who pursued risky military strategies in hopes of winning the war.
Sex on the Kitchen Table
Sex and food are intimately intertwined, and this relationship is nowhere more evident than among the plants that sustain us. From lascivious legumes to horny hot peppers, most of humanity’s calories and other nutrition come from seeds and fruits—the products of sex—or from flowers, the organs that make plant sex possible. Sex has also played an arm’s-length role in delivering plant food to our stomachs, as human handmade evolution (plant breeding, or artificial selection) has turned wild species into domesticated staples.
Norman C. Ellstand is Distinguished Professor of Genetics at the University of California, Riverside, where he holds the Jane S. Johnson Endowed Chair in Food and Agriculture. He is also the author of Dangerous Liaisons?: When Cultivated Plants Mate with Their Wild Relatives.
Roger L. Ransom is Distinguished Professor of History and Economics, Emeritus at the University of California, Riverside. He is best know for his work with Richard Sutch on the American Civil War and has authored several other publications.
