*The Essential Hirschman*

Jeremy Adelman, Hirschman’s biographer, is the editor behind this one, and you can pre-order your copy here.  It contains many of Hirschman’s best known essays, with an afterword by Amartya Sen and Emma Rothschild.

Self-recommending, to say the least.  I find only the title strange, as I would have preferred “Some of the essays by Albert Hirschman which perhaps we are not still underrating,” though I grant that might sell fewer copies.


Googled "The Essential Judith Butler" trying to get a hit. Guess none of her editors have a sense of humor.

Ha ha! Good one!

Adelman is also the professor of a very engaging course in Coursera called "A History of the World since 1300"
