The evolution of cooperation

Elsewhere Stephen Den Beste and David Janes are discussing game theory. It all reminds me of a book called "The Evolution of Cooperation" by Robert Axelrod. In it he offers an interesting discussion, complete with many examples of cooperation springing spontaneously in improbable situations. Such as during trench warfare in World War I. It could be worth a look.
