A lot of my reading time has been absorbed by job market papers (some of them covered here on MR) and CWT prep, in the meantime I have been browsing these with profit:
Alexandra Popoff, Vasily Grossman and the Soviet Century covers what the title promises.
David Wallace-Wells, The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming. The title aside, a very good and very well-written book on the basics of climate change.
Sophus A. Reinert, The Academy of Fisticuffs: Political Economy and Commercial Society in Enlightenment Italy, is the best English-language book I know of on the Italian Enlightenment. Everything you wanted to know about Pietro Verri but were afraid to ask.
Margaret C. Jacob, The Secular Enlightenment, again delivers good coverage of what the title promises.
Matthias Doepke and Fabrizio Zilibotti, Love, Money & Parenting: How Economics Explains the Way We Raise Our Kids. Note this book is sober rather than actually telling you how to raise your kids. And it has sentences like: “In earlier times, men and women had sharply distinct roles.”
Michael Tomasello, Becoming Human: A Theory of Ontogeny does not quite intersect with cultural economics and Joe Henrich, but someday somebody will write a book like this and start making the connections.
