Review copies waiting in my pile

1. Acting White: The Ironic Legacy of Desegregation, by Stuart Buck.

2. Prophet of Innovation: Joseph Schumpeter and Creation Destruction, by Thomas McCraw, new in paperback.  I loved this book, you can Google back to my previous reviews.

3. Anthony de Jasay, Political Philosophy, Clearly: Essays on Freedom and Fairness, Property and Equalities.  This one is a Liberty Fund edition.

4. The Great Reset: How New Ways of Working and Living Drive Post-Crash Prosperity, by Richard Florida.

5. 13 Bankers: The Wall Street Takeover and the Next Financial Meltdown, by Simon Johnson; a public choice analysis of the unholy alliance between finance and politics.

6. Holy Warriors: A Modern History of the Crusades, by Jonathan Phillips.

There are others, too.  All of these appear to have merits.


Here is something I read of Schumpeter, and never learned
the end. In Austria he fell in love with a girl in her teens,
spoke to her father, put her in a good school with the agreement
that he would marry her when she came of age. Perhaps he did
exactly that. Some, perhaps many, innovators have complex
personalities. While he helped Jews escape Hitler, he would not
denounce him outright.
