Great attention has been paid in making the books friendly to students. This includes very attractive pricing as well as design features such as special margins on each page that give students ample room to take notes on the book itself.
The series has a distinctive look and feel. The books currently planned are generously sized trade paperbacks (6.69 inches by 9.61 inches) with high quality paper, but still priced lower than most mass-market paperbacks.
We are committed to working with teachers to improve our program and our books. Request changes and corrections, sample copies, inclusion of additional essays, additional titles, etc. and we will be happy to consider your request
