Refine Your Search for a Book or Product

Use the “Quick Search” box in the top-right corner of every page to search our product database for books (and other non-book works like the Digital Loeb Classical Library) by title, author, subject, series, or ISBN. Or complete one or more fields in the form below for a more specific search.

Search Tips
  • Search is case-insensitive; that is, capitalization does not matter.
  • Use quotation marks to find precise wording. For example: “stanley fish”
  • Use “wild card” characters to find extra matches. An asterisk (*) matches any character. An “at” symbol (@) matches a single character. For example:
    Searching for f*sh finds fish, fash, fresh and flesh;
    Searching for f@sh finds fish and fash.
  • Subject categories correspond to the BISAC Subject Headings assigned to each title.

You can also visit Subjects & Series to browse books by subject, series, and publishing partner.

Harvard University Press Senior Editor Julia Kirby is reminded of this on the anniversary of the birth of one of this country’s most celebrated economists. This month would have brought Thomas Schelling’s one-hundredth birthday—and he got closer to seeing it than many mortals. The Nobel laureate economist died just five years ago, after a brilliant career as both a scholar and an advisor to US foreign policy strategists. What better day to dip into his classic work
