Games and the players who play them

About two years ago, a colleague of mine presented an evolutionary form of explanation for his empirical study on the uprising of local parties in Sweden. The main influence for his research was based on Edgar Kiser's analytical narratives - a way to try to converge empirical research with game theory settings. He received intense criticism at the seminar from some older professors who claimed that this was no proper way of dealing with game theory. I tried to ruch to his defense as I suspected that the older crowd had not opened a book on Game theory after the 70ies.
And of course, he, and I, were right, as proven in this newly published paper by Dan Houser:
Players and strategies in game settings. The paper can be downloaded here (pdf).
