What are our obligations to others as people in a free society? Should government tax the rich to help the poor? Is the free market fair? Is it sometimes wrong to tell the truth? Is killing sometimes morally required? Is it possible, or desirable, to legislate morality? Do individual rights and the common good conflict? Michael J. Sandel's "Justice" course is one of the most popular and influential at Harvard. Up to a thousand students pack the campus theater to hear Sandel relate the big questions of political philosophy to the most vexing issues of the day, and this fall, public television will air a series based on the course. Justice offers readers the same exhilarating journey that captivates Harvard students. This book is a searching, lyrical exploration of the meaning of justice, one that invites readers of all political persuasions to consider familiar controversies in fresh and illuminating ways. Affirmative action, same-sex marriage, physician-assisted suicide, abortion, national service, patriotism and dissent, the moral limits of markets—Sandel dramatizes the challenge of thinking through these con?icts, and shows how a surer grasp of philosophy can help us make sense of politics, morality, and our own convictions as well. Justice is lively, thought-provoking, and wise—an essential new addition to the small shelf of books that speak convincingly to the hard questions of our civic life.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman heralds the arrival of his thrilling new stand-alone novel, The Murderer’s Daughter, with this eBook original prequel short story—a powerful portrait of a young man seeking his destiny, who will ultimately play a key role in the life of an unforgettable new Kellerman heroine. It’s the summer of 1965, and Malcolm Bluestone, fresh out of Harvard and bound for law school, is taking a break—from the books and Brooklyn—to soak in the sun and sights of California. Free from his doting parents, he’s enjoying a whirlwind tour of his older brother Steve’s glamorous movie-star lifestyle. Yet all the excitement only seems to leave Malcolm feeling haunted by the sheltered, studious life he leads—and trapped by the secure but predictable future that awaits him. It is a future he has the power to change, if he’s brave enough to dare and wise enough, like his brother, to listen to his heart. But it will take a shocking incident on a movie set to finally spur Malcolm to action—and free him to walk the path he knows he was meant to. Praise for Jonathan Kellerman and his Alex Delaware mysteries “Jonathan Kellerman’s psychology skills and dark imagination are a potent literary mix.”—Los Angeles Times “A master of the psychological thriller.”—People “Kellerman really knows how to keep those pages turning.”—The New York Times Book Review “The combination of Alex Delaware [and] Detective Milo Sturgis . . . makes for the most original whodunit duo since Watson and Holmes.”—Forbes “Kellerman doesn’t just write psychological thrillers—he owns the genre.”—Detroit Free Press

If Jane Austen and Sholem Aleichem ("Fiddler on the Roof") schemed in an elevator, this just might be their pitch. Ari is Elizabeth and Itche is Jane¿and this Jewish, queer, New York City retelling of "Pride and Prejudice" is for everyone. Ari Wexler, a trans guy in his late 20s, is barely scraping by. His family life is a mess, he feels like a failure when it comes to love, and his job at a music library is on the rocks. His relationship with Itche Mattes, his doting best friend, helps him get through the days. Then a famous actress comes to town and sweeps Itche off his feet, leaving her dreadful sidekick to step on Ari¿s toes. As Ari¿s despair grows, a fascinating music project falls into his lap, and he¿s faced with a choice: to remain within his comfort zone, however small and stifling, or to take a risk that could bring meaning and joy to his life. A romantic comedy full of angsty wrestling matches between idealism and cynicism, work and art, and friendship and romance. It will keep you guessing until the very end.
