  • Understanding Statebuildingby Rebecca Richards

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 119.95

    Much analysis of state building focusses on dissecting specific projects and attempting to identify what has gone ‘wrong’ in states such as Afghanistan and Iraq.

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 73.50

    The original 1944 G.I. Bill holds a special place in the American imagination.

  • America Writes Its History, 1650-1850by Jude M. Pfister

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 35.00

    By turns irreverent, sympathetic and amusing, America Writes Its History, 1650-1850 adds to the public discourse on national identity as advanced through the written word.
