The Hoover Institution at Stanford University is a public policy research center devoted to the advanced study of economics, international affairs, history, and political economy. With its eminent scholars and world-renowned Library & Archives, the Hoover Institution seeks to improve the human condition by advancing ideas that promote economic opportunity and prosperity, while securing and safeguarding peace for America and all mankind.
As the publishing arm of the institution, the Hoover Institution Press is dedicated to informing public policy decisions and communicating key ideas by producing the works of Hoover's fellows, working groups, and affiliated scholars. Concepts that were important to Herbert Hoover—private enterprise, personal freedom, representative government, peace, and safeguarding the American system—continue to animate our work. Thus we emphasize books on economics, national security, education, energy and the environment, health care, history, law and regulation, and political philosophy.
