The Best Teachers in the World” by John E. Chubb
Start Now” by George P. Shultz; Michael J. Boskin; John F. Cogan; Allan H. Meltzer; and John B. Taylor

On the cover:
Painter William Herndon Foster found poetry in an image of speed, purpose, and transition: a moonlit scene of two trains passing in the night—in this case, the westbound and eastbound versions of the Twentieth Century Limited, America’s most famous train. The luxurious trains raced between Chicago and New York during the middle of their namesake century. In this painting, they are probably crossing west of Buffalo, about halfway into their opposite journeys, the passengers snug in their Pullman bunks and the powerful steam locomotives taking full advantage of the smooth “Water Level Route,” whose straightaways and broad curves hugged the rivers and lakes of the Northeast. Travelers from New York would have stepped aboard in Grand Central Terminal from a scarlet carpet, emblazoned with the Twentieth Century’s name, that was the very origin of the phrase “red-carpet treatment”—and once aboard, they expected nothing short of the best.

On the cover:
“Everything is beautiful there, even regrets,” Albert Camus said of the enchanting hilltop town known as Cordes sur Ciel. The walled city, chartered in the thirteenth century as simply Cordes, was given its expanded name of “in the sky” in the late twentieth century in reference to the clouds that envelop the lower slopes in fall and spring. Visible from miles away, Cordes sur Ciel seems to sail through a sea of clouds just as it has navigated hundreds of years of colorful history. Click here to read the full description. -->
