Thomas LeBien, Executive Editor-at-Large

startquoteBooks that promise to influence conversations within and beyond the academy in the fields of law, economics, history, business, and finance are my primary focus. Arguments that arise from the intersection of fields—the history of economics and business history, behavioral economics, the sociology of law, criminology and the economics of race—that speak to pressing contemporary concerns are of particular interest. I seek out authors with commanding expertise and a willingness to work with an editor and every department of Harvard University Press to realize greater visibility and consequence for their books. Authors I have worked with include John Hope Franklin, Sam Harris, Iris Bohnet, Jonathan Gruber, Cass Sunstein, Richard Posner, Ellen Fitzpatrick, and Franklin Zimring. I frequently commission books; submitted proposals are also welcome.endquote
