Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
In this survey for the Library of Congress Series in American Civilization the setting and problems of scholarship are discussed by Merle Curti; the social sciences are treated by the late Louis Wirth, while W. Stull Holt is concerned specifically with historical research; modern languages and literatures are discussed by René Wellek, and the classics and archaeological studies form the subject of Walter R. Agard’s section; the final piece, by Arthur E. Murphy, deals with philosophy in the twentieth century.
