Beating the Odds: Jump-Starting Developing Countries<br>Justin Yifu Lin & Célestin Monga

Beating the Odds:
Jump-Starting Developing Countries
Justin Yifu Lin & Célestin Monga

"This powerful book brings encouraging news to developing countries. A nation does not have to be developed to achieve economic growth: Witness Israel’s cultivation of the Negev Desert and Mali’s vibrant mango industry. History gives striking examples of takeoff into sustained growth with little education and not much infrastructure either."--Edmund Phelps, Columbia University, Nobel Laureate in Economics

Private Government: How Employers Rule Our Lives (and Why We Don't Talk about It)<br>Elizabeth Anderson

Private Government:
How Employers Rule Our Lives (and Why We Don't Talk about It)
Elizabeth Anderson

"The extent of the arbitrary authority of owners and managers over employees is surprisingly neglected by political thinkers, given how much time we spend at work and how little in the polling booth. Elizabeth Anderson provides a much-needed, important, and compelling account of this overlooked subject. Private Government deserves to be widely read and discussed."—Alan Ryan, professor emeritus, University of Oxford

Biomedical Odysseys:
Fetal Cell Experiments from Cyberspace to China

Ideology in the Supreme Court<br>Lawrence Baum

Ideology in the Supreme Court
Lawrence Baum

"It is common, and surely correct, to note that Supreme Court justices often vote ideologically. It is also common, and also surely correct, to note that it is not as simple as that. Baum takes this as a starting point to explore just how--in a world in which ideological coalitions shape so many things--ideology permeates judicial decision making."--Hans Noel, author of Political Ideologies and Political Parties in America

Natural Complexity: A Modeling Handbook<br>Paul Charbonneau

Natural Complexity:

Arab Patriotism:
The Ideology and Culture of Power in Late Ottoman Egypt
Adam Mestyan

"A superb scholarly achievement, Arab Patriotism displays a thorough understanding of nineteenth-century Ottoman-Egyptian elite history, framing the emergence of Arab nationalism within Ottoman-Arab patriotism. Based on an impressive array of sources, this is arguably the most important contribution to the discourse on modern Egyptian and Middle East sociopolitical and cultural history in recent years."--Ehud R.

The Birth of Hedonism: The Cyrenaic Philosophers and Pleasure as a Way of Life<br>Kurt Lampe

The Birth of Hedonism:
The Cyrenaic Philosophers and Pleasure as a Way of Life
Kurt Lampe

"This fine book is the most comprehensive study of Cyrenaic hedonism in English. It will be the core resource on the Cyrenaics for anyone with a serious interest in ancient ethics. More than that, it ensures that the Cyrenaics (at last) have a place alongside the other great ancient philosophical schools, and it is a model for scholarship to affirm the continuing appeal and relevance of ancient philosophy."--Sean McConnell, Classical Journal

Chosen Nation:
Mennonites and Germany in a Global Era

"Chosen Nation is a remarkable exploration of the entangled histories of nationalism, race, and religion since the nineteenth century. Goossen tells the story of how Mennonites came to think of themselves as a German diasporic community in concert with the construction of the German nation. Based on stunning archival research, this is a beautifully written book."--Tara Zahra, author of The Great Departure: Mass Migration from Eastern Europe and the Making of the Free World

Communism's Shadow: Historical Legacies and Contemporary Political Attitudes<br>Grigore Pop-Eleches & Joshua A. Tucker

Communism's Shadow:
Historical Legacies and Contemporary Political Attitudes
Grigore Pop-Eleches & Joshua A. Tucker

"This is a pioneering and fascinating analysis. While previous scholarship has examined the impact of communist legacies on institutions and collective actors, Pop-Eleches and Tucker focus on the behavioral legacies of communism: how living through communism changed political attitudes and beliefs regarding democracy, markets, social welfare, and gender equality. Compelling, rigorous, and innovative, this study is a must-read for all those interested in authoritarian legacies, post-communist regimes, and the formation of political values."--Anna Grzymala-Busse, Stanford University

Cultures in Motion
Edited by Daniel T. Rodgers, Bhavani Raman & Helmut Reimitz

"Cultures in Motion represents first-rate scholarship and opens up a critical new space for historiography. Exploring the movement of things, ideas, and other cultural forms, the book--and the introduction in particular--gives an independent existence and importance to such work, and raises original questions about historical change and intercultural understandings."--Thomas Bender, author of A Nation Among Nations

Evolution's Bite: A Story of Teeth, Diet, and Human Origins<br>Peter S. Ungar

Evolution's Bite:
A Story of Teeth, Diet, and Human Origins
Peter S. Ungar

"[A] fascinating exploration of the world of teeth and what they have to teach us about the evolution of modern humans and the environments that shaped that process. . . . Ungar’s book is about as close to a tour de force as a science book is likely to get. The writing is accessible, often witty, and the balance between discussion of what the empirical data has to show us and the history of the field of paleoarchaeology itself creates a narrative of the lives of both the discovered and the discoverers that is hard to put down. . . . I recommend this book with my highest praise."--David Brock, NSTA Recommends

Fighting for Status: Hierarchy and Conflict in World Politics<br>Jonathan Renshon

Fighting for Status:
Hierarchy and Conflict in World Politics
Jonathan Renshon

"People think that countries go to war over resources, but all too often nations are, as Shakespeare put it, ‘jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel, seeking the bubble reputation even in the cannon's mouth.' With insight and data, Renshon explains how nebulous concerns with status, prestige, and respect can drive the course of war and peace."--Steven Pinker, author of The Better Angels of Our Nature

The Happiness Philosophers: The Lives and Works of the Great Utilitarians<br>Bart Schultz

The Happiness Philosophers:
The Lives and Works of the Great Utilitarians
Bart Schultz

"The Happiness Philosophers is a remarkable achievement. Bart Schultz uses his skill in philosophical biography to bring the founders of utilitarianism to life. But he does much more than that. By revealing the early utilitarians' fascinating mix of intelligence, passion, and reforming zeal, he dispels caricatures of utilitarian thinking. His conviction that utilitarianism can guide us in our search for solutions to the ethical and political problems we face today only adds to the importance of the book."—Peter Singer, author of Ethics in the Real World: 82 Brief Essays on Things That Matter

The Seven Deadly Sins of Psychology:
A Manifesto for Reforming the Culture of Scientific Practice
Chris Chambers

"The Seven Deadly Sins of Psychology is an unflinching self-examination of the state of psychology. At first Chambers’s account might seem pessimistic, even fatalistic. But the rising narrative ultimately reveals his optimism about the discipline’s future via the collective action of its practitioners. Part historical account, part methodological review, The Seven Deadly Sins of Psychology will get psychologists thinking, talking, and maybe even acting to overcome the status quo and align the cultural incentives with scientific values."--Brian Nosek, Center for Open Science

In Smith's hands, each exhibition presented here becomes a self-contained story that contributes to the larger narrative of Wright's relentless determination to advance his ideas."—Jack Quinan, author of Frank Lloyd Wright's Martin House: Architecture as Portraiture
