May 26, 2016: New Scholarly Books: Jacobs and King’s Fed Power
[With the semester done, this week I’ll be getting to work on the final revisions of my forthcoming fourth book. More on that on Friday, but first, I wanted to highlight briefly four new books in American Studies by colleagues and friends. Check ‘em out and share your own book recommendations, please!]
I reviewed Fed Power: How Finance Wins (2016), co-authored by my Scholars Strategy Network colleague Lawrence Jacobs and his collaborator Desmond King, for the Huffington Post earlier this year. I said what I wanted to say about the book there, so here I’ll just say that it’s a pitch-perfect example of AmericanStudies public scholarship—and if you know me at all, you know that’s about the highest praise I can give.
More on my own next book tomorrow,
PS. Other books (new or not) you’d recommend?
