Examination copies and desk copies

We are happy to provide free copies of our textbooks to any instructor who is considering adopting one of our titles or who has already adopted one. We ask that you help us pay for shipping and handling—$6.00 for the first title; $2.00 for each additional title.

For shipments to Canada, please add an additional $10.

We regret that we cannot accept other international exam copy requests. Please order through our bookstore.

To order exam copies (or desk copies, if you have already adopted one of our books), fill out the form below. (See the bottom of this page for information about how to order by email, phone, or mail.) The links below will open up separate windows or tabs so you can get more information about the books without navigating away from the form. But if you do navigate away, the form will keep whatever information you've already filled in.

Please visit our bookstore for a complete catalog of our books, including forthcoming titles.

Custom textbooks: We are now able to produce high-quality, low-cost custom anthologies of articles from Dollars & Sense magazine. If none of our existing textbooks meets your needs, please ask us about custom textbooks in the "comment" section of the form below.

We are not able to provide free copies of Teaching Economics As If People Mattered as it is a curriculum guide and not a classroom textbook.
