Podcast No. 7 – Interview with Alex Cooley

Sep 8, 2012

The seventh episode of the Duck of Minerva Podcast just went live. In it, I interview Alex Cooley about his books on hierarchy, basing, incomplete contracting, and his new book, Great Games, Local Rules: The New Great Power Contest in Central Asia (Oxford University Press, 2012).
