CSS Accepts Prestigious Irving Louis Horowitz Collection
Common Sense Society (CSS) is honored to receive The Irving Louis Horowitz Collection from Mary Ellen Curtis Horowitz, widow of the late Irving Louis Horowitz. This generous gift is made up of over 1,200 books published by Transaction Publishers, a leading academic publisher of numerous seminal works in the social sciences, including works by Milton Friedman, Joseph A. Schumpeter, John Kenneth Galbraith, Aldous Huxley, and Hannah Arendt. The Horowitz Collection will be housed in the Washington-based CSS offices as part of the CSS Library.
“The Irving Louis Horowitz Collection represents an important archive of non-politicized social science that will prove invaluable for future generations of research scholars,” said CSS president and C.E.O. Marion Smith. “CSS serves as a hub for rigorous debate and civil discussion, so we are grateful for the opportunity to steward this collection and explore its authors’ ideas with today’s young leaders.”
