Because we all need more books to read…

Friday evening is a time for settling on the sofa with the magazines and catalogues that have arrived during the week, and last night it was the next season’s catalogue for Harvard University Press. There are some terrific upcoming offerings. Top of my list will be Richard Baldwin’s . His papers on the successive ‘unbundlings’ in production driving global trade are wonderful.

Plenty of others look enticing too. by Brooke Harrington – a study of the professional advisers who make global inequality possible. by Harvey Cox looks intriguing, theology meets economics. by Charles S Maier – “territorial boundaries transform geography into history,” says the blurb. by Minxin Pei will be a must-read for China-watchers. Also interesting-looking is by Julian Gewirtz.
