Summary and Info
Although it has been some time since I have read this book, I still consider from time to time Helmke's introduction of the concept of strategic defection. The notion that judges may, out of self-interest, rule against sitting executives in order to signal to incoming executives is very interesting. Helmke's arguments, including use of game theoretical models to illustrate points, make for a compelling case. I highly recommend this book.
