The technological revolution in the social sciences made available a set of research tools and data manipulation techniques that permit the study of complex social processes previously inaccessible or not amenable to our observational powers. One important set tools took the generic title "experimental games," which were characterized by the interactive protagonists' pursuit of relatively wee-defined goals whose achievement is dependent on the behavior of others. James T. Tedeschi, Barry R. Schlenker, and thomas V. Bonoma, in this work, explicate these highly structured interactions.
