How to search

Macat’s search navigation bar allows you to search for any analyses, books, and authors within 14 major humanities and social science disciplines, from anthropology to philosophy via economics, history, politics, psychology, and sociology. We currently have 50 books analyzed and will be introducing new books and topics constantly. The Macat library is backed up by a much larger list of over 10,000 titles. Our integrated search function ensures that your search term cross-references all content that has been analyzed, which will help if you are doing research for an essay, preparing for a lecture, or simply have interest in a particular topic.
