Dr. Harpham is the author or editor of 10 books, one which has gone through 7 editions and three books which have gone through 2 editions. He also has published over 25 professional articles or chapters in books. The unifying theme to Dr. Harpham's work has been the exploration of the relationship between economics and politics. Much of Dr. Harpham's earlier work investigated the roles that modern economic ideas have played in shaping our understanding of politics and public policy in the west. Another area of interest has been the relationship between technological transformations and political change in American political history. More recently, he has been investigating the theories of the passions found in modern liberal thought. He is particularly interested in understanding how the theories of the passions developed in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries influenced modern notions of the individual, sociability, and individual decision-making in the work of such individuals as Rene Descartes, John Locke, David Hume, Francis Hutcheson, and Adam Smith. Dr. Harpham has a special interest in Texas politics and government and is the author of three leading texts in the field with W.W. Norton Publishers.
