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 »

This is the first book on a subject with major theoretical consequences which, though not a decade old, has found important applications in clinical medicine, public health, industry, the elucidation of the phenomenon of “brainwashing,” and the psychological problems of space flight. These papers were given in June 1958 at a symposium of research in progress from many different disciplines. Since research reports have not been readily available, this volume will be a major contribution as a source book. The work in this area highlights the need for a new model in dealing with the human central nervous system.

What’s more, their responses include book recommendations sure to help you breeze through the sunny season—from our own library as well as those of fellow university presses.
