Class Readings

Readings: There are readings for each week of the course. These readings vary in length, mode and sophistication. The required readings include sections of eight books, none of which is assigned in its entirety.

Many of these books are available entirely online for free as downloads, though of course you can buy or borrow the book from the library. Copies of each one should be on reserve at the HLS library.

Feel free to put any additional information on this page as well as discuss, summarize, etc., the books at their own entries.
