In 1958, Harvard University Press published the first volume of NOMOS, the yearbook of the American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy. Edited by Carl Friedrich, and entitled Authority, it began a series of annual volumes published or currently in production. These thematic collections have been staples of political and legal philosophical scholarship and in many cases have become the first place for scholars to turn on any given theme. The essays continue to be a valuable resource for interdisciplinary research and undergraduate and graduate education. The volumes from 1977 (NOMOS XVII) to 2017 (NOMOS LVIII) are available on JSTOR. (There is generally a two- to three-year lag between publication of the volumes by New York University Press and when they become available on JSTOR.)
