It all began atop a drugstore in Princeton, New Jersey, in November 1905.

To understand how the legal system works, students must consider the law in terms of its structures, processes, language, and modes of thought and argument—in short, they must become literate in the field. Legal Literacy fulfills this aim by providing a foundational understanding of key concepts such as legal personhood, jurisdiction, and precedent, and by introducing students to legal research and writing skills. Examples of cases, statutes, and other legal materials support these concepts. While Legal Literacy is an introductory text, it also challenges students to

Finally, here is the first accurate & beautiful translation of Richard Cantillon’s 1755 masterpiece on economics. This treatise is widely credited with being the first to describe the market process as one driven by entrepreneurship. William Stanley Jevons, in the first blush of discovery, proclaimed Cantillon’s Essai, "the cradle of political economy." A cradle holds new life; & there can be little doubt that the Essai added new life to the organizing principles of economics. But "political economy" does not accurately describe the subject Cantillon addressed. Indeed, he

When Robinson Crusoe left the English coast for Africa, he never dreamed he’d soon find himself on a desert island, the sole survivor of a shipwreck. Daniel Defoe’s gripping adventure-one of the first English novels-chronicles Crusoe’s experiences on the island, which include finding a human footprint on the shore, encountering cannibals, and befriending a native whom Crusoe calls Friday. Crusoe’s story is also an account of one man’s physical survival and his psychological and spiritual development in an alienating and dangerous solitude. This classic novel, publ

  This book is written for anybody who is curious about nature and motion. Curiosity about how people, animals, things, images and space move leads to many adventures. This volume presents the best of them in the domain of everyday life. Carefully observing everyday motion allows us to deduce six essential statements: everyday motion is continuous, conserved, relative, reversible, mirror-invariant – and lazy. Yes, nature is indeed lazy: in every motion, it minimizes change. This text explores how these six results are deduced and how they fit with all those observations that seem
