  • Women Don't Askby Linda Babcock; Sara Laschever

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 15.00

    When Linda Babcock asked why so many male graduate students were teaching their own courses and most female students were assigned as assistants, her dean said: "More men ask.

  • Beauty Paysby Daniel S. Hamermesh

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 17.95

    Most of us know there is a payoff to looking good, and in the quest for beauty we spend countless hours and billions of dollars on personal grooming, cosmetics, and plastic surgery.

  • Politics in Timeby Paul Pierson

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 30.95

    This groundbreaking book represents the most systematic examination to date of the often-invoked but rarely examined declaration that "history matters."

Yet the meaning of social events or processes is frequently distorted when they are ripped from their... more...

  • The Gambleby John Sides; Lynn Vavreck

    Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 29.95

    "Game changer." We heard it so many times during the 2012 U.S. presidential election. But what actually made a difference in the contest--and what was just hype? In this groundbreaking book, John Sides and Lynn Vavreck tell the dramatic story of the election--with a big difference. Using an unusual "moneyball" approach, they look beyond the anecdote,... more...

  • Einstein and the Quantumby A. Douglas Stone

    Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 29.95

    Einstein and the Quantum reveals for the first time the full significance of Albert Einstein's contributions to quantum theory.

  • Bipolar Expeditionsby Emily Martin

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 28.95

    Manic behavior holds an undeniable fascination in American culture today.

  • How Mathematicians Thinkby William Byers

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 24.95

    To many outsiders, mathematicians appear to think like computers, grimly grinding away with a strict formal logic and moving methodically--even algorithmically--from one black-and-white deduction to another. Yet mathematicians often describe their most important breakthroughs as creative, intuitive responses to ambiguity, contradiction, and paradox.... more...
