NYU’s Institute of Public Knowledge joins NYU Press and the Social Science Research Council to celebrate the launch of Possible Futures, a challenging new book series. In the first three volumes, series editor Craig Calhoun joins with Georgi Derluguian to bring together some thirty-six of the world’s leading social scientists to analyze the recent global financial crisis in historical context and with broad comparative attention to different parts of the world. The contributors address the connections between financial upheaval and a range of other social issues, and they consider the ways that both past history and current challenges shape possible futures.
