We wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year and thank readers of our blog and Columbia University Press titles for their interest in our books and our authors. In a seemingly ever-shifting publishing environment, we are grateful for the continuing interest among readers for serious, thoughtful books that offer new ways of thinking about politics, culture, society, and the world around us. We published a range of titles in 2011 that we felt made a difference and below is our Spring 2012 catalog which offers a sampling of what you can look forward to in the coming months.
