On My Desk: Forthcoming Book Reviews

Winter break is always a great time to catch up on other small projects that have been postponed. The following have landed on my desk for review for the next six months. All of which, I am thrilled to review. Each of them not only feed my interests, but are valuable texts within their respective field. Some of them I have eyed for sometime now, awaiting the day I have the time to open the crisp book, smell the new pages, and begin wrestling the arguments laid forth by the author.

Each time I review a book, it makes me anticipate the time my book will finally be written, it makes me appreciate the task of research even more, and it makes me anticipate how each read will change and influence the way I think about a field.

Here are the few that will occupy my time in the coming months.
