American Business, Politics, and Society (BPS)
Books in the series American Business, Politics, and Society explore the relationships over time between governmental institutions and the creation and performance of markets, firms, and industries large and small. The central theme of this series is that public policy—understood broadly to embrace not only lawmaking but also the structuring of institutions—has been fundamental to the evolution of American business from the colonial era to the present. The series editors are especially interested in publishing books that explore developments that have durable consequences.View the volumes available in the BPS series.

The Arts and Intellectual Life in Modern America (AIL)
Volumes in the series explore the intersection of the history of expressive culture and the history of ideas in modern America.

The series also expands the domain of intellectual history by examining how artistic works, and aesthetic experience more generally, participate in the discussion of truth, value, civic purpose, and personal meaning.

Contemporary Ethnography (CE)
A purpose of this series is to encourage ethnographic writing that is flexible enough to give a voice to the people whose lives it records, to recreate those lives rather than merely describe them, and to encompass in this recreation the complexity, ambiguity, and emotion that are central to human experience. This flexibility can be achieved through the use of narration, first person and multiple points of view, dialogue, descriptive imagery, and other literary techniques.

Democracy, Citizenship, and Constitutionalism (DCC)
In 1787, revolutionaries in Philadelphia invented a new political identity: citizenship in a large-scale constitutional democracy.

Yet despite its great prestige, constitutional democratic citizenship is fraught with tensions that are becoming ever more acute. The DCC series seeks to publish the best empirical and normative explorations of citizenship, democracy, and constitutionalism from scholars in many disciplines, including political science, law, history, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, communications, literature, and education.

In addition, Divinations encourages scholarship that interrogates the very category of religion as applied to the late ancient Mediterranean world. View the volumes available in the DIV series.
