Sabin's book explains how he uses simple simulations to help teach students in his classes . It would be of great interest to other educators, but be warned, these games are simple, with emphasis on simple. His games are designed to be learned and played in a two-hour class, often with TAs guiding the play of teams of students, rather than having the students learn and play the game themselves. I found Sabin seemed too dismissive of more complex games throughout the book, writing how he had to simplify one game after another for his students, or scoffing at a large rulebook. This book takes a look at the development and use of 'Conflict Simulations' or wargames.
William James Stover. What pass for the study of international relations is often more an examination of foreign affairs, transnational interaction from ethnocentric perspectives. Many analysts accept the assumptions and values of their own political culture, then superimpose them on other nations. If another state does not act in accordance with those values, its leaders are labeled irrational. Such ethnocentric analysis excludes empathy, the ability to experience the values, feelings, and perceptions of another, a basic element needed to understand international relations. The study of international relations is often an examination of foreign relations and world affairs from an ethnocentric perspective (Nossal 1998; Wendt 1999). Instructors accept their own values and then superimpose them on students. This ethnocentric analysis excludes a basic element for understanding international relations-empathy, the ability to participate in another’s values, perceptions, and feelings.

This book is about war gaming, and if you are expecting a traditional treatment of simulation, you may be disappointed. Sabin, a military historian, is also a master war-game designer, and a significant part of the book is devoted to very effective descriptions of his methodology and design, with several examples of completed games provided, including Second Punic War, Roma Invicta?, Hell's Gate, Big Week and Fire and Movement.
Audiences of books, films, music, and other non-gaming media are by no. .Being a Terrorist: Video Game Simulations of the Other Side of the War on Terror. War, Media, & Conflict, 6(3), 207-220.
Audiences of books, films, music, and other non-gaming media are by no means passive, but audience participation in these media is usually limited to textual interpretation and involvement in fan activities. By contrast, video games force players to become participants in simulated events. When contemporary war games are not set in or based on real conflicts they tend to create new conflicts that involve real political actors and that mirror existing international tensions. Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 imagine American military involvement in Iran and China.
