While I was away in New Jersey for the past week and a half, several books came in for review. I’ll get to some of these in more detail in the coming weeks and months, but in the meantime, and to be fair to the authors and publishers, I thought I’d do a Glenn Reynolds-style “In the Mail” style post with Amazon links to at least help get these titles into (further) circulation:
- Peace, They Say: A History of the Nobel Peace Prize, the Most Famous and Controversial Prize in the World, by Jay Nordlinger.
- The Tyranny of Cliches: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas, by Jonah Goldberg.
- Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010, by Charles Murray.
- American Nietzsche: A History of an Icon and His Ideas, by Jennifer Ratner-Rosenhagen.
The books by Jonah and Jay Nordlinger are due out in the spring. The titles by Hibbs, Murray and Ratner-Rosenhagen have been out for a bit. If you’ve read them, please post your thoughts in the comments.
