Ann E. Davis has written The Evolution of the Property Relation: Understanding Paradigms, Debates, and Prospects just published by Palgrave MacMillan. Although the neoliberal paradigm relies on an unchanging, unexamined definition of property,  this book makes the case that the definition of property is discretionary and continually evolving.  Further, the conception of the role of the state and the "rational individual" also vary accordingly.

Ellen Mutari and Deborah M. Figart have written Just One More Hand: Life in the Casino Economy,   published by Roman and Littlefield.  "Just One More Hand is a masterful tale of the perils of economic development strategy gone awry, told with the analytical skills of two talented economists and seen through the eyes of a diverse group of people who depended on Atlantic City’s casinos for their livelihoods." — Eileen Appelbaum, Senior Economist, Center for Economic and Policy Research.

John Weeks has written. Economics of the 1% How Mainstream Economics Serves the Rich, Obscures Reality and Distorts Policy, just published by Anthem Press. 

David M. Kotz has just written The Rise and Fall of Neoliberal Capitalism published by Harvard University Press.  The book considers the key features of the changed form of capitalism that arose around 1980, why it emerged starting in the late 1970s (including the role of big business political action), how it worked through 2007,  why it gave rise to a severe financial and real sector crisis in 2008, and the institutional changes that might arise in the years ahead.

Jamee Moudud's new paper, written with Esteban Perez Caldentey and Enrique Delamonica,  investigates the ways in which power struggles in Argentina and Chile have shaped the nature of taxation, social, and labor policies in the two countries over the past three decades:  It is published by  the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development.

Corporate Power, Oligopolies, and the Crisis of the State  by Luis Suarez-Villa has just been published by SUNY Press.

Howard Sherman and Michael A. Meeropol have written a new book,  Principles of Macroeconomics: Activist vs. Austerity Policies, published by Routledge.
