Dublin: The Making of a Capital City

Dickson, David
As rich and diverse as its subject, Dickson's magisterial history brings 1,400 years of Dublin vividly to life: from its medieval incarnation through the neoclassical eighteenth century, the Easter Rising that convulsed the city in 1916, the bloody civil war following the handover of power by Britain, to end-of-millennium urban renewal efforts.

The Myth of Artificial Intelligence: Why Computers Can't Think the Way We Do

Larson, Erik J.
Futurists are certain that humanlike AI is on the horizon, but in fact engineers have no idea how to program human reasoning. AI reasons from statistical correlations across data sets, while common sense is based heavily on conjecture. Erik Larson argues that hyping existing methods will only hold us back from developing truly humanlike AI.

A Brief History of Equality

Piketty, Thomas
In this powerful new work, Thomas Piketty reminds us that rising inequality is not inevitable. Over the centuries, we have been moving toward greater equality.

Translation of the author's Le capital au XXIe siaecle.

Capital and Ideology

Piketty, Thomas
Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century showed that capitalism, left to itself, generates deepening inequality.

Capital in the Twenty-First Century

Piketty, Thomas
The main driver of inequality--returns on capital that exceed the rate of economic growth--is again threatening to generate extreme discontent and undermine democratic values. Thomas Piketty's findings in this ambitious, original, rigorous work will transform debate and set the agenda for the next generation of thought about wealth and inequality.

A Theory of Justice: Original Edition

Though the revised edition of A Theory of Justice, published in 1999, is the definitive statement of John Rawls's view, much of the extensive literature on his theory refers to the first edition. This reissue makes it once again available for scholars and serious students of Rawls's work.
