Acknowledgments and References

The Strategy Palette builds on the contributions of several authors in the fields of contingent strategy (choosing strategy according to a particular set of circumstances) and meta-strategy (strategies for choosing a strategy). The following references are especially recommended for those who want to deepen their understanding, and trace the evolution, of those ideas.
