  • A Social Strategyby Mikolaj Jan Piskorski

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 22.95 US$ 18.36

    Almost no one had heard of social media a decade ago, but today websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn have more than 1 billion users and account for almost 25 percent of Internet use. Practically overnight, social media seems indispensable to our lives--from friendship and dating to news and business. What makes social media so different... more...

  • Mostly Harmless Econometricsby Joshua D. Angrist; Jörn-Steffen Pischke

    Princeton University Press 2008; US$ 45.00 US$ 36.00

    The core methods in today's econometric toolkit are linear regression for statistical control, instrumental variables methods for the analysis of natural experiments, and differences-in-differences methods that exploit policy changes. In the modern experimentalist paradigm, these techniques address clear causal questions such as: Do smaller classes... more...

  • The Horse, the Wheel, and Languageby David W. Anthony

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 29.95 US$ 23.96

    Roughly half the world's population speaks languages derived from a shared linguistic source known as Proto-Indo-European. But who were the early speakers of this ancient mother tongue, and how did they manage to spread it around the globe? Until now their identity has remained a tantalizing mystery to linguists, archaeologists, and even Nazis seeking... more...

  • The Next Great Globalizationby Frederic S. Mishkin

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 37.50 US$ 30.00

    Many prominent critics regard the international financial system as the dark side of globalization, threatening disadvantaged nations near and far. But in The Next Great Globalization , eminent economist Frederic Mishkin argues the opposite: that financial globalization today is essential for poor nations to become rich. Mishkin argues that an effectively... more...

  • How Mathematicians Thinkby William Byers

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 24.95 US$ 19.96

    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...

  • A Matter of Interpretationby Antonin Scalia; Amy Gutmann

    Princeton University Press 1998; US$ 18.95 US$ 15.16

    We are all familiar with the image of the immensely clever judge who discerns the best rule of common law for the case at hand. According to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, a judge like this can maneuver through earlier cases to achieve the desired aim--"distinguishing one prior case on his left, straight-arming another one on his right,... more...

  • Barriers to Democracyby Amaney A. Jamal

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 29.95 US$ 23.96

    Democracy-building efforts from the early 1990s on have funneled billions of dollars into nongovernmental organizations across the developing world, with the U.S. administration of George W. Bush leading the charge since 2001. But are many such "civil society" initiatives fatally flawed? Focusing on the Palestinian West Bank and the Arab world, Barriers... more...

  • The Great Brain Debateby John E. Dowling

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 27.95 US$ 22.36

    Whether our personality, intelligence, and behavior are more likely to be shaped by our environment or our genetic coding is not simply an idle question for today's researchers. There are tremendous consequences to understanding the crucial role that environment and genes each play. How we raise and educate our children, how we treat various mental... more...

  • Aftermathby Susan J. Brison

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 31.95 US$ 25.56

    On July 4, 1990, while on a morning walk in southern France, Susan Brison was attacked from behind, severely beaten, sexually assaulted, strangled to unconsciousness, and left for dead. She survived, but her world was destroyed. Her training as a philosopher could not help her make sense of things, and many of her fundamental assumptions about the... more...

  • Teslaby W. Bernard Carlson

    Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 19.95 US$ 15.96

    Nikola Tesla was a major contributor to the electrical revolution that transformed daily life at the turn of the twentieth century.

Like his competitor Thomas Edison, Tesla was one of America's first... more...
