McGraw-Hill is excited to announce the publication of Stephen A. Ross, Mentor: Influence through Generations, which honors the contributions made by Steve Ross to the finance discipline and how his influence extends well beyond his writings.

In this volume, students whose careers and thinking were particularly influenced by Steve Ross have chosen to dedicate a prominently published article of their own to his mentorship. In addition to the reprinted articles, each student has written a short piece about their experience with Steve Ross as a mentor. These essays are unique in their ability to shed light on what good research is and how to motivate students to produce it.

Twenty-seven contributors, including editor Mark Grinblatt, participated in putting this book together. The table of contents is below.
