Canadian researchers try to discover the best way to defeat a zombie uprising. The answer: hit them hard, fast, and often. And mercy (in the form of capture or treatment) is for the weak. Tim Cavanaugh thinks the professors are too grim -- but they have mathematical modeling on their side. Mathematical modeling!
Daniel Drezner, by contrast, analyzes the zombie threat from a variety of International Relations perspective. To my eye, it's way too much diplomacy and not enough scenes from "Resident Evil" -- but that's just me.
Here is a link to the original study.
