Piketty's 'Capital': A Hit That Was, Wasn't, Then Was Again

Posted at 8:23AM Friday 25 Apr 2014

Until this month, Harvard University Press had achieved two notable sales successes in the past 15 years, both sold around 60,000 copies in each one's first year, making them blockbusters by HUP's scholarly standards.

By contrast, Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century has already sold around 80,000 copies in less than two months, and is currently sold out.
