IEAS Publications COVID-19 Update

IEAS is temporarily shut down due to an Alameda County, California, shelter-in-place order.  Softcover book distribution is suspended until the order is lifted, but PDF e-books can still be purchased at this site.  It's a good time to order an e-book!  We will post an update when softcover books are available again.  Thank you for your patience.
