Asymptotic Differential Algebra and Model Theory of Transseries<br>Matthias Aschenbrenner, Lou van den Dries & Joris van der Hoeven

Asymptotic Differential Algebra and Model Theory of Transseries
Matthias Aschenbrenner, Lou van den Dries & Joris van der Hoeven

This self-contained book validates the intuition that the differential field of transseries is a universal domain for asymptotic differential algebra. It does so by establishing in the realm of transseries a complete elimination theory for systems of algebraic differential equations with asymptotic side conditions. Beginning with background chapters on valuations and differential algebra, the book goes on to develop the basic theory of valued differential fields, including a notion of differential-henselianity. Next, H-fields are singled out among ordered valued differential fields to provide an algebraic setting for the common properties of Hardy fields and the differential field of transseries.

Face Value: The Irresistible Influence of First Impressions<br>Alexander Todorov

Face Value:
The Irresistible Influence of First Impressions
Alexander Todorov

"Faces are what newborns naturally seek. They are the objects of our love, trust, fear, longing, and memory. They inspire poetry and the visual arts. We rely on faces to reveal mood and character, allowing them to influence hiring decisions, criminal convictions, and elections. In this magisterial work, Todorov takes us on a tour of the face, its role in human affairs, and its power to influence and mislead. You'll always look at faces, but never the same way again."—Eldar Shafir, coauthor of Scarcity: The New Science of Having Less and How It Defines Our Lives

The Fascinating World of Graph Theory<br>Arthur Benjamin, Gary Chartrand & Ping Zhang

The Fascinating World of Graph Theory
Arthur Benjamin, Gary Chartrand & Ping Zhang

"The Fascinating World of Graph Theory shows its pedagogic value. Traditional courseware develops subject matter from the bottom on up, going from basic definitions to the more complex. [This book] is different, not starting with the simplest structures or algorithms but with interesting problems to be solved, puzzles that use graphs and networks. . . . [It is] readable and ‘student-friendly'--more so than the typical math textbook."--New York Journal of Books

The First Serious Optimist: A. C. Pigou and the Birth of Welfare Economics<br>Ian Kumekawa

The First Serious Optimist:
A. C. Pigou and the Birth of Welfare Economics
Ian Kumekawa

"Among economists, A. C. Pigou is the hero of the market failure school and the scourge of laissez-faire. It is left to historians to move beyond such simplifications and bring out the full complexity of the man. Kumekawa has done just that, offering an enlightening and beautifully written portrait of Pigou and providing a touchstone for putting economists' attempts to increase economic welfare in historical context."--Steven G. Medema, author of The Hesitant Hand: Taming Self-Interest in the History of Economic Ideas

I Hear My People Singing:
Voices of African American Princeton
Kathryn Watterson

"An extraordinary and most necessary book, I Hear My People Singing recasts American history as a whole by presenting in their own words the full lives of black Princetonians, lives forged within the utterly everyday Americanness of enslavement, segregation, and insult. This book is so very welcome, now that we are facing up to the realities of white supremacy in even so admirable a place as Princeton. Thank you, Kathryn Watterson, for letting us hear from these Princetonians so long behind the veil."--Nell Irvin Painter, author of The History of White People

How Eighteenth-Century Slang, Cant, Provincial Languages, and Nautical Jargon Became English
Janet Sorensen

"Sorensen integrates perspectives from historical sociolinguistics, dialectology, lexicography, literary criticism, folklore, and social history to give us a fresh and fascinating account of the growth of vernacular English in the early modern period. In her breadth of reading and depth of illustrative detail, she provides a hugely insightful contribution to our knowledge of the history of English studies that will quickly make Strange Vernaculars a standard work of reference."--David Crystal, author of The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English Language

The Visioneers: How a Group of Elite Scientists Pursued Space Colonies, Nanotechnologies, and a Limitless Future<br>W. Patrick McCray

The Visioneers:
How a Group of Elite Scientists Pursued Space Colonies, Nanotechnologies, and a Limitless Future
W. Patrick McCray

"In his fascinating new book, McCray profiles the larger-than-life characters and ideas that changed science and technology in the second half of the 20th century and beyond. The author describes the titular visioneers as 'hybrids'--creative combinations of futurist, scientist, and charismatic promoter. At the center of this story are physicist Gerard O'Neill and biotech pioneer K. Eric Drexler. . . . McCray, a professor of history at UC Santa Barbara, discusses how O'Neill's vision of space as a tabula rasa for the human race spurred the formation of grassroots groups like the L5 Society and captured the imaginations of many young scientists and engineers like Drexler, as well as influential figures like Stewart Brand and Timothy Leary. Considered together, they 'took speculative ideas out of the hands of sci-fi writers' and had an enormous impact on generations of people, science, and political policy."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Cents and Sensibility: What Economics Can Learn from the Humanities<br>Gary Saul Morson & Morton Schapiro

Cents and Sensibility:
What Economics Can Learn from the Humanities
Gary Saul Morson & Morton Schapiro

"Focusing mostly on integrating exposure to great realist novels (such as Anna Karenina, Middlemarch, and War and Peace) into economics education, the authors use three case studies on, respectively, higher education, the family, and the economic development of nations to make an insightful and compelling argument. Morson and Schapiro succeed in finding new ways of thinking about big issues as well as new ways to read classic novels. . . . The case studies read like popular nonfiction. There’s immense joy to be found throughout this work on thinking with creativity and passion."--Publishers Weekly

The Many Deaths of Jew Süss: The Notorious Trial and Execution of an Eighteenth-Century Court Jew<br>Yair Mintzker

The Many Deaths of Jew Süss:
The Notorious Trial and Execution of an Eighteenth-Century Court Jew
Yair Mintzker

"This remarkable book does much more than offer a gripping reconstruction of the 1737 trial of Joseph Suss Oppenheimer, who had been the personal banker and advisor of the duke of a small German state and was executed, after the duke’s death, for serious crimes against the state. Such a reconstruction would already have been a significant achievement, as the rigorous attention to detail and nuance bring the case vividly to life. But Mintzker . . . Also explains the challenges presented to a historian in ascertaining the truth about the trial, and the rationale behind his way of dealing with the evidentiary record. . . . This fascinating intellectual journey deserves a wide audience."--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
