Four New-to-Left Coast Titles by Max van Manen
August 14th, 2015

We’re very pleased to announce the following news about our author Max van Manen. 

Max is unquestionably the most respected and read contemporary phenomenologist in education and the human sciences. We published his Phenomenology of Practice last year and it is now our bestseller. We’ll be publishing his Pedagogical Tact this fall as well. We have just added four “new-to-Left Coast” titles as well. 

Max's older works were published through Althouse Press, a small education publisher based at University of Western Ontario. Althouse has now gone out of business and we have worked out with Max that Left Coast Press, Inc. will be distributor of these titles effective immediately. If you had thought of adding these books to your library or assigned them for your courses, you should now order from us. 

These titles include:

We look forward to publishing more with Max, including those titles in his Phenomenology of Practice series
