  • Noiseby Alex Preda

    University of Chicago Press 2017; US$ 35.00

    We often think of finance as a glamorous world, a place where investment bankers amass huge profits in gleaming downtown skyscrapers. There?s another side to finance, though?the millions of amateurs who log on to their computers every day to make their own trades. The shocking truth, however, is that less than 2% of these amateur traders make a consistent... more...

  • My City Highrise Gardenby Susan Brownmiller

    Rutgers University Press 2017; US$ 25.00

    Nearly four decades ago, when best-selling author Susan Brownmiller first planted her garden in an apartment terrace twenty stories above street level in the borderland between Manhattan?s Greenwich Village and the Meatpacking District, she could little imagine the struggles and triumphs she and her plants would experience over the years. Filled with... more...

  • The Three Axial Agesby John Torpey

    How can historical developments and discoveries be used to affect future outcomes?

  • Fast-Food Kidsby Amy L. Best

    NYU Press 2017; US$ 22.10

    In recent years, questions such as ?what are kids eating?? and ?who?s feeding our kids?? have sparked a torrent of public and policy debates as we increasingly focus our attention on the issue of childhood obesity. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that while 1 in 3 American children are either overweight or obese, that number... more...

  • Creativity without Lawby Kate Darling; Aaron Perzanowski

    NYU Press 2017; US$ 30.00

    Intellectual property law, or IP law, is based on certain assumptions about creative behavior. The case for regulation assumes that creators have a fundamental legal right to prevent copying, and without this right they will under-invest in new work. But this premise fails to fully capture the reality of creative production. It ignores the range of... more...

  • The Morality of Self-defense and Military Action: The Judeo-Christian Traditionby David Kopel

    ABC-CLIO 2017; US$ 48.00

    Are self-defense, national warfare, and revolts against tyranny holy duties?or violations of God's will? Pacifists insist these actions are the latter, forbidden by Judeo-Christian morality. This book maintains that the pacifists are wrong. To make his case, the author analyzes the full sweep of Judeo-Christian history from earliest times to the present,... more...

  • The Complacent Classby Tyler Cowen

    St. Martin's Press 2017; US$ 20.29

    "Tyler Cowen's blog, Marginal Revolution, is the first thing I read every morning. And his brilliant new book, The Complacent Class , has been on my nightstand after I devoured it in one sitting. I am at round-the-clock Cowen saturation right now."--Malcolm Gladwell Since Alexis de Tocqueville, restlessness has been accepted as a signature American... more...

  • Reluctant Skepticby Harry T. Craver

    Berghahn Books 2017; US$ 34.95

    The journalist and critic Siegfried Kracauer is best remembered today for his investigations of film and other popular media, and for his seminal influence on Frankfurt School thinkers like Theodor Adorno.
