About this book

This narrative and empirical analysis investigates Hilary's claim that in his day they would not have left a man behind to die. The authors examine over 60 years of Himalayan climbing data and stories in order to test the changes in cooperation in this extreme life and death environment.

About the authors

David Savage is interested in the behavioural analysis of the extreme, from natural and man-made disasters (floods and terrorism) to high stress work and play environments (mountaineers to police). David seeks to marry the broader social sciences to the empirical rigor of behavioural economics, focusing on the decision of individuals.

Benno Torgler is Professor at the QUT Business School and Australian Research Council Future Fellow. He is a Fellow of the CESifo Research Network and the Center for Research in Economics, Management and the Arts. Author of several books and journal articles, Torgler has contributed to various fields within and beyond economics.
