James Brandt, Editor

startquoteI acquire books in philosophy, politics, and the social sciences more broadly. I am interested in books that offer original answers to foundational questions, as well as books that clarify issues of public concern. I especially welcome manuscripts that speak to audiences beyond the confines of a discipline, whether neighboring academic fields or a general intellectual audience.
