    Springer 1998; US$ 281.00

  • Our Underachieving Collegesby Derek Bok

    Princeton University Press 2008; US$ 29.95

    Drawing on a large body of empirical evidence, former Harvard President Derek Bok examines how much progress college students actually make toward widely accepted goals of undergraduate education.

  • Freedom and Responsibilityby Hilary Bok

    Princeton University Press 1998; US$ 31.00

    Can we reconcile the idea that we are free and responsible agents with the idea that what we do is determined according to natural laws? For centuries, philosophers have tried in different ways to show that we can. Hilary Bok takes a fresh approach here, as she seeks to show that the two ideas are compatible by drawing on the distinction between practical... more...

    Coach House Books 2005; US$ 13.95

    The word ‘eunoia,? which literally means ‘beautiful thinking,? is the shortest word in English that contains all five vowels.

  • Horsekeepingby Roxanne Bok

    Easton Studio Press, LLC 2011; US$ 9.99

    Why would successful urbanites, used to clean, controlled and orderly lives, take on the task of restoring a near collapsing empty barn littered with haphazard and decayed fencing, pastures deep in standing water, and try to turn it into a thriving horse farm? Initially motivated only by a city dweller?s fantasy and obscure memories of childhood... more...

  • Eunoiaby Christian Bök

    Canongate Books 2008; US$ 12.46

    ?Eunoia?, which means ?beautiful thinking?, is the shortest word in the English language to contain all five vowels. This book also contains them all, but never at the same time. Each of Eunoia?s five chapters is univocalic: that is, each chapter uses only one vowel. A triumphant feat, seven years in the making, this uncanny work of avant-garde literature... more...
