The Art of Social Theory<br>Richard Swedberg The Art of Social Theory
Richard Swedberg

"Who expected new ideas about 'the art of social theory,' or even knew that it was an 'art'? Vintage Swedberg: wry and erudite yet engaging and accessible, drawing on philosophy, epistemology, and cognitive science to argue that though theorizing requires creativity and imagination, it can be effectively taught.

Visual Ecology<br>Thomas W. Cronin, Sönke Johnsen, N. Justin Marshall & Eric J. Warrant Visual Ecology
Thomas W. Cronin, Sönke Johnsen, N. Justin Marshall & Eric J. Warrant

"Visual Ecology explores the idea that how we see is shaped, perhaps even determined, by what we see. And not just us--from lowly dung beetles to terrifying mantid shrimps to majestic birds of prey, the authors provide a breathtaking tour of the clever solutions that Nature has found to the physics problems involved in sensing the visual environment. A beautiful book for a beautiful subject."--William Bialek, Princeton University

Equal Recognition: The Moral Foundations of Minority Rights<br>Alan Patten Equal Recognition:
The Moral Foundations of Minority Rights
Alan Patten

"The subject of cultural diversity raises many tricky issues of justice, which often lead to emotional and confused debate. Equal Recognition offers a systematic and dispassionate discussion of these issues, combining analytical rigor, philosophical depth, intellectual honesty, and an awareness of the complexity of real-life situations. This makes it the most important contribution to the philosophy of cultural diversity since Will Kymlicka's Multicultural Citizenship."--Philippe Van Parijs, University of Louvain

The Commodification of Hospital Care in the United States
Adam D. Reich

"This exceptionally clear and lively book takes us deep into the heart of the American health care system to observe how doctors, nurses, and administrative staffs in three hospitals respond to market pressures. Selling Our Souls brings to light these institutions' diverse moral-economic contradictions, shaped by their foundational ideals and different resource bases. May this nuanced and comprehensive depiction of the present provide a greater understanding for the future."--Marion Fourcade, University of California, Berkeley

Between Monopoly and Free Trade: The English East India Company, 1600-1757<br>Emily Erikson Between Monopoly and Free Trade:
The English East India Company, 1600-1757
Emily Erikson

"Erikson's extraordinary book is, on the one hand, a major contribution to the study of the development of the British East India Company and its role in the formation of capitalism and British Eastern imperial expansion, and on the other, an exemplary and essential work in historical and analytic sociology. Its rigorous, multilevel analysis topples conventional explanations of the relation between British imperialism and capitalism. The book also brilliantly demonstrates the full potential of network analysis for the understanding of the diffusion of information, while remaining sensitive to the roles of context, locality, and culture."--Orlando Patterson, Harvard University

Citizenship between Empire and Nation:
Remaking France and French Africa, 1945-1960<br>Frederick Cooper Citizenship between Empire and Nation:
Remaking France and French Africa, 1945-1960
Frederick Cooper

"In this archival tour de force, Frederick Cooper proposes a radically new understanding of French decolonization in Africa. Far from being determined by the irrepressible force of nationalism, this process was punctuated by attempts to invent alternatives to empire that would maintain a strong connection between France and African territories. Cooper captures the effervescence of these debates, during which French and African individuals transformed the meaning of such central notions as citizenship, empire, nation, and federation. By showing the depth of their political imagination, Cooper invites us to think about the power of ours."--Emmanuelle Saada, Columbia University

Till Düppe & E. Roy Weintraub

"Düppe and Weintraub have written a powerful book that is both a marvelous introduction to modern economics for all who want to know what mathematical economists are up to, and a deep, textured account of the paths Arrow, Debreu, and McKenzie followed on their way to general equilibrium theory. A thoughtful mix of biography, intellectual history, and mathematical expertise, Finding Equilibrium invites us into the moments that proved decisive for economics as it exists today."--Peter Galison, author of Einstein's Clocks, Poincaré's Maps

Inventing the Job of President: Leadership Style from George Washington to Andrew Jackson<br>Fred I. Greenstein Inventing the Job of President:
Leadership Style from George Washington to Andrew Jackson
Fred I. Greenstein

"Greenstein does an excellent job of providing short biographies of each president covered, as well as placing their presidencies into the context of their times, making this book a no-nonsense guide to the characters of these seven presidents, and an examination of the characteristics that the author believes served them well and poorly during their time in office. An interesting addition to the study of the presidency, I would recommend Inventing the Job of President."--Stefan Fergus, Civilian Reader

Leaders, Intelligence, and Assessment of Intentions in International Relations

With its extraordinarily detailed historical research, extensive coverage of primary sources, compelling evidence, and balanced interpretations, Knowing the Adversary is indispensable reading for conflict theorists, intelligence analysts, and diplomatic historians."--Jack S.

Vincent Azoulay
Translated by Janet Lloyd
With a foreword by Paul Cartledge

"Striking a balance between adulation and hypercriticism, the author depicts Pericles as a formidable strategos overseeing grandiose public works, including the Parthenon, Odeon, and Long Walls linking Athens to its port of Piraeus, while inwardly mastering the art of remaining silent and suffering 'outrageous assaults without striking back.'. . . Solid, well-researched . . . a worthwhile addition for lovers of ancient history and classical Greece."--Publishers Weekly

Wandering Greeks: The Ancient Greek Diaspora from the Age of Homer to the Death of Alexander the Great<br>Robert Garland Wandering Greeks:
The Ancient Greek Diaspora from the Age of Homer to the Death of Alexander the Great
Robert Garland

"The Greeks, Plato observed, were scattered around the Mediterranean like 'frogs round a pond.' How they came to be there has always been treated as a political story. By listening more closely to the croaking of the frogs, Robert Garland gives a rich impression of the varied experiences at the center of the story. In this vivid and empathetic book, he brings out, for the first time, the human reality of being a Greek on the move."--Robin Osborne, University of Cambridge
