Announcing The Columbia University Press Spring 2023 Catalog

Dear Readers,

I am proud to present our Spring 2023 catalog, which demonstrates the shared strengths of Columbia University Press and Columbia University itself. In these books, Columbia authors build on distinguished careers to share important ideas with readers everywhere.

This season, we are excited to introduce two vital new series. Black Lives in the Diaspora: Past / Present / Future, published in partnership with Howard University, offers timely and rigorous books in a number of fields that together illuminate the diversity of Black experiences. 

Core Knowledge presents lively, short books by experienced scholar-teachers—debuting with Gareth Williams, Philip Kitcher, and Susan J. Wolfson—on canonical works in the spirit of Columbia’s Core Curriculum for all readers interested in the essential works of Western culture, no matter where they spent their undergraduate years.

This catalog features career-defining works by leading Columbia scholars. Bernard E. Harcourt’s Cooperation is a bold and definitive statement of a new and profound political theory. In Think Bigger, Sheena Iyengar provides tools for generating big ideas and making big decisions. Edmund Phelps, a Nobel laureate, explores the human side of economics in My Journeys in Economic Theory

Major Columbia figures sum up their work for students, practitioners, and all interested readers: Rafael Yuste on neuroscience, Steven Cohen on sustainability, and Glenn Denning on food security.

We welcome returning authors including Leigh Gilmore, Catherine J. Turco, and Enzo Traverso, and we are also honored to announce that new distributed presses are joining us: ERIS, a London-based publisher of politics and philosophy, and Floating Opera Press, a Berlin-based publisher of art criticism and essays.

In order to publish these groundbreaking works, we rely on the Columbia University community, the broader university press community, and our readers. Thank you for helping support our books and our mission.

Jennifer Crewe, Associate Provost and Director
