    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 27.50

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 17.00

    Throughout the history of the Western world, science has possessed an extraordinary amount of authority and prestige.

  • The Hollow Hopeby Gerald N. Rosenberg

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 26.00

    In follow-up studies, dozens of reviews, and even a book of essays evaluating his conclusions, Gerald Rosenberg’s critics—not to mention his supporters—have spent nearly two decades debating the arguments he first put forward in The Hollow Hope .

    America is a wonderful and magnificent country that affords its citizens the broadest freedoms and the greatest prosperity in the world. But it also has its share of warts.

  • A Certain Smileby Françoise Sagan; Diane Johnson; Anne Green

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 14.00
