The Stanford Business Books imprint is home to academic trade books, professional titles, texts for course use, and monographs that explore the social science side of business. These books illuminate institutions, organizations, and the people within them in a way that is instrumental for readers understanding and practice—not flatly instructional. While offering insightful and surprising arguments, useful frameworks, and multidimensional tools, Stanford Business Books steers clear of the “seven steps” cliché.
The study of organizations extends well beyond traditional companies. Thus, this imprint includes innovative works that address the social sector, as well as distinctive titles that put performance and program evaluation in context. Interdisciplinary series housed within this imprint offer an ongoing dialogue, including Stanford Social Innovation Review Books, Innovation and Technology in the World Economy and High Reliability and Crisis Management.
