Research on-and-off for the last decade or so: (a) a simple theory of homo sociologicus, explicitly contrasted with homo economicus, and derived theories about intragroup cooperation and intergroup conflict; (b) the social structure and culture of nomads in southwestern and central Asia. Personal News: My wife Andrea was a programmer from 1967 to 1970 in the Office of Survey Research and Statistical Studies in the basement of Green Hall. [Is that the right name of the office? "Green" or "Greene" Hall? Please correct if I am wrong.] Two daughters, one grandson, and two grandaughters on the way.
