Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt
By Michael Lewis (WW Norton)
"One of the country's most popular business journalist returns to the financial world with a new book that gives readers a ringside seat as the biggest story in years prepaares to hit Wall Street

"The light that Lewis shines into the darkest corners of the financial world may not be good for your blood pressure, because if you have any contact with the market, even a retirement account, this story is happening to you. But in the end, Flash Boys is an uplifting read. Here are people who have somehow preserved a moral sense in an environment where you don t get paid for that; they have perceived an institutionalized injustice and are willing to go to war to fix it."

By Thomas Piketty  (Harvard University Press)
"It seems safe to say that “Capital in the Twenty-First Century,” the magnum opus of the French economist Thomas Piketty, will be the most important economics book of the year — and maybe of the decade. Mr. Piketty, arguably the world’s leading expert on income and wealth inequality, does more than document the growing concentration of income in the hands of a small economic elite. He also makes a powerful case that we’re on the way back to “patrimonial capitalism,” in which the commanding heights of the economy are dominated not just by wealth, but also by inherited wealth, in which birth matters more than effort and talent. -Paul Krugman

The Globalization of Clean Energy Technology: Lessons From China
By Kelly Sims Gallagher (MIT Press)
“Thank you to Kelly Sims Gallagher for this important contribution to the literature on technology transfer, clean energy, and China. Her thorough research, thoughtful analysis, and clear writing make this a must-read for anyone working on these topics. ” —David Sandalow, Inaugural Fellow, Center on Global Energy Policy, Columbia University; author of Freedom from Oil


Make it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning
By Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger, III, Mark A. McDaniel (Belknap Press)
“Learning is essential and life-long. Yet as these authors argue convincingly, people often use exactly the wrong strategies and don't appreciate the ones that work. We've learned a lot in the last decade about applying cognitive science to real-world learning, and this book combines everyday examples with clear explanations of the research. It's easy to read—and should be easy to learn from, too!”—Daniel L. Schacter, author of The Seven Sins of Memory


By Francis D. Cogliano (Yale University Press)
“Incomparably the best study of Jeffersonian statecraft, offering fresh perspectives on Jefferson’s approach to foreign policy and his attitudes toward presidential power and republican government. . . . It will be the standard study in its field.”—Peter Onuf, University of Virginia


Cell*- (Limited Autographed Copies Available in Store)
By Robin Cook  (Putnam Press)

"With Cell Robin Cook demonstrates why he is the undisputed king of medical thrillers.  Can a smartphone app kill you? You'll believe it can after you read this story, which blasts along faster than a truckload of quad core processors. Equal measures a substantive social commentary that we will all soon have to deal with and a terrifying blood-and-guts tale of what lies right around the technology corner, Cook has delivered a home run worthy of the the writer who has consistently thrilled millions ever since his blockbuster Coma."
—David Baldacci #1 New York Times-bestselling author of King and Maxwell 

Forward by, Charles Mela (Artbook-DAP)- (Featured at the Greek Embassy)
From Hellenic Greece to Rome and Byzantium, coins functioned in part as narrative objects, engraved with images of gods and lords, planets and cities, heroes and legends. Words and Coins analyzes these copper coins in their relation to Western folklore, myth and literature, spanning the fifth century BC to the fifteenth century. Examining books and manuscripts, as well as other artifacts, the catalogue highlights and elaborates on the ongoing complex relationship between the language arts and image-making.
Words and Coins examines how the two media resemble, differ and complement each other, and how their respective messages were distributed in human societies throughout the ages. This gorgeous publication, edited by Belgium-based design studio Luc Derycke, contains a photographic essay by photographer Laziz Hamani.

By Gregory Clark, Neil Cummins, Yu Hao (Princeton University Press)
"The Son Also Rises is a remarkable challenge to conventional wisdom about social mobility. Using highly original methods and ranging widely across world history, Clark argues that the activities of governments impact mobility much less than most of us think--and that the only sure path to success is to be born to the right parents. Everyone interested in public policy should read this book."--Ian Morris, author of Why the West Rules--for Now


By Cass R. Sunstein (Princeton University Press)
"It often seems that rumors are the one element that can travel faster than the speed of light. In On Rumors, Cass Sunstein helps us understand their incredible appeal, their power, and their dangers. A fun-tastic book."--Dan Ariely, James B. Duke Professor of Behavioral Economics, Duke University, and author of Predictably Irrational


By Diane Coyle (Princeton University Press)
"This is an engaging and witty but also profoundly important book. Diane Coyle clearly and elegantly explains the fundamental difficulties of GDP--and how this headline figure is liable to radical change by apparently simple changes in method. She also provides a nice treatment of alternative proposals such as happiness surveys."--Harold James, author of Making the European Monetary Union



By Frank Prochaska (PublicAffairs)
“An ambitious ‘reconstruction’ . . . Augustine Birrell, the English politician and belle-lettrist, put the matter as plainly as Bagehot himself might have: "To know Walter Bagehot through his books," he said, "is one of the good things of life." And so is knowing Bagehot through these ‘Memoirs.’”
—George Selgin, The Wall Street Journal

By David A. Cleveland  (University of California Press)

"Achieving sustainable food production on earth is a destination whose route has not yet been charted. But in mapping the trajectory of the global agrifood system—from soil condition to social organization—and examining the critical concepts, values, and assumptions that underlie it, Cleveland has begun to reveal for us what that route—and the destination itself—might someday look like."
—Dr. Deborah K. Letourneau, Department of Environmental Studies, University of California, Santa Cruz

By Donald E. Canfield (Princeton University Press)

"In Oxygen, Don Canfield recounts two epics in one--the evolution of breathable air over the entirety of Earth history, and the equally engaging account of how scientists have reconstructed this history from chemical details in ancient rocks. Even those who know the story well, or think they do, will find much food for thought."
--Andrew Knoll, Harvard University, author of Life on a Young Planet: The First Three Billion Years of Evolution on Earth
