    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 21.95

    Widening global inequalities make it difficult for parents in developing nations to provide for their children, and both mothers and fathers often find that migration in search of higher wages is their only hope. Their dreams are straightforward: with more money, they can improve their children's lives. But the reality of their experiences is often... more...

  • Remaking Citizenshipby Kathleen Coll

    Stanford University Press 2010; US$ 23.95

  • Stolen Honorby Katherine Ewing

    Stanford University Press 2013; US$ 24.95

    On May 17, 2010, four undocumented students occupied the Arizona office of Senator John McCain.

  • The Other Adam Smithby Mike Hill; Warren Montag

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    The Other Adam Smith represents the next wave of critical thinking about the still under-examined work of this paradigmatic Enlightenment thinker. Not simply another book about Adam Smith, it allows and even necessitates his inclusion in the realm of theory in the broadest sense. Moving beyond his usual economic and moral philosophical texts, Mike... more...

  • Making History in Iranby Farzin Vejdani

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 60.00

    Iranian history was long told through a variety of stories and legend, tribal lore and genealogies, and tales of the prophets.

Farzin Vejdani investigates this transformation... more...

  • The Specter of Capitalby Joseph Vogl

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 22.95

    In his brilliant interdisciplinary analysis of the global financial crisis, Joseph Vogl aims to demystify finance capitalism?with its bewildering array of new instruments?by tracing the historical stages through which the financial market achieved its current autonomy.

  • Hasidism Incarnateby Shaul Magid

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 65.00

    Hasidism Incarnate contends that much of modern Judaism in the West developed in reaction to Christianity and in defense of Judaism as a unique tradition. Ironically enough, this occurred even as modern Judaism increasingly dovetailed with Christianity with regard to its ethos, aesthetics, and attitude toward ritual and faith. Shaul Magid argues... more...

  • The Eureka Mythby Jessica Silbey

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 25.95

    Are innovation and creativity helped or hindered by our intellectual property laws? In the two hundred plus years since the Constitution enshrined protections for those who create and innovate, we're still debating the merits of IP laws and whether or not they actually work as intended. Artists, scientists, businesses, and the lawyers who serve them,... more...

  • Greening of Capitalismby John Mathews

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 65.00

    As China, India, and other industrializing giants grow, they are confronted with an inconvenient truth: They cannot rely on the conventions of capitalism as we know them today.
