Norton is bringing us the widely trailedby Nicholas Wapshott. This sounds like another must-read, looking at the original clash and its contemporary relevance. Also from Norton, on the US economy, by John Taylor of Stanford University.
From Profile, we have a business biography,, written with veteran financial journalist and biographer Judi Bevan; and Africa’s Future: Darkness to Destiny by Duncan Clarke.
Wiley is publishing another business story,, by Claire Diaz-Ortiz, with a foreword by Twitter founder Biz Stone.
Penguin’s forthcoming list is heavy on financial self-help, but his one caught my eye:by Tom Lyons and Bryan Carey. The authors, two journalists who have covered the extraordinary story of Anglo-Irish Bank throughout, have incorporated a series of formal interviews with its former chairman Sean FitzPatrick.
Little, Brown is publishing a book by FT journalist Edward Luce on American decline,His book on India, , was excellent. Another US title is co-authored by Thomas Friedman and Michael Mandelbaum, . I only occasionally agree with Andrew Simms of the New Economics Foundation but he’s always worth reading. His book is out in June.
An interesting prospect from Palgrave is the forthcomingby Nobel Laureate Ronald Coase and Ning Wang. I can’t think what Coase’s most recent book before this was. Just out from the same publisher is The growth of Public Expenditure in the united Kingdom from 1870 to 2005 By Clive Lee, whose statistical appendix looks like a good resource.
Bloomsbury has what looks like a must-read on one key part of the Arab Spring,by Ahdaf Soueif. Also of interest is by Paul Gilding; and also a novel of the financial crisis, , by Justin Cartwright, out in paperback.

Finally, Constable & Robinson are publishingby Stephen Armstrong, a good idea for the new austerity Britain, and for all those interested in behavioural psychology, by Bruce Hood, this year’s terrific Royal Institution Christmas Lecturer.

This post and yesterday’s have not been at all systematic, so if any publishers I’ve omitted would like to let me know what they have in store, I’ll do a further round-up early in the New Year.
