In addition to the good references provided by Rodrigo I would like to suggest Myerson's paper on the impact of J. Nash's works on Economic theory:

John Nash's formulation of noncooperative game theory was one of the great breakthroughs in the history of social science. Nash's work in this area is reviewed in its historical context to better understand how the fundamental ideas of noncooperative game theory were developed and how they changed the course of economic theory.
