Important titles in the series include The Measure of America, 2010-2011: Mapping Risks and Resilience. This essential report on the quality of life in America is truly path-breaking research of the highest order.
We have also published Possible Futures. This series, edited by Craig Calhoun, gathers together leading social scientists to address the significance of the global economic crisis in short, accessible books. Each volume takes on the past, present, and future of this crisis suggesting that it has an informative history, that the consequences could be much more basic than the stock market declines, and that only fundamental changes—not fiscal band-aids—can head off future repetitions.
