Jeremy Bailenson, Experience on Demand: What Virtual Reality Is, How It Works, and What It Can Do. Usually I am allergic to “general summary about some new topic in tech” books, but this one is quite good.
Michela Wrong, I Didn’t Do It For You: How the World Betrayed a Small African Nation, is in fact, as a number of you had suggested, probably the best book on Eritrea.
Matthew Engelke, How to Think Like an Anthropologist, is a very good introduction to exactly what the title promises.
Robert Wuthnow tries his hand at The Left Behind: Decline and Rage in Rural America.
Benn Steil, The Marshall Plan: Dawn of the Cold War.
