Reviews

  • John Mathews wins 2018 Schumpeter Prize for his book Global Green Shift: When CERES Meets GAIA. "On a broader scale, Mathews' book offers a wide Schumpeterian picture of the great transformation that is underway in the global economy, as manufacturing activities shift to China and other Asian countries and the green energy revolution takes place as a strategic response." 

    Schumpeter Prize Selection Panel, commendation

  • 'This eye-opening book from preeminent researchers and practitioners shows how risk assessments and role playing among key local stakeholders can engage and persuade. It offers hope and guidance to policy makers and citizens who want to act before it is too late.'

    — Judith Innes, University of California Berkeley; review of Managing Climate Risks in Coastal Communities

  • 'The Stakes of Regulation, with its often drôle, always limpid and sometimes mordantly polemical style, is a dazzling toolbox on the ways of doing history, an epistemological reflection on how to gain access to the past, and a fresh reading of some of the major issues of eighteenth-century history.'

    — Arnaud Orain, University of Paris; review of The Stakes of Regulation

  • 'This book is a joy: a fantastically useful teaching aid…a very necessary historical conscience in an age of amnesia.'

    The Business Economist, review of Kicking Away the Ladder

  • 'Broadly conceived, richly detailed, thoroughly researched in the national and local archives, and generously larded with suggestions for future study, this is a piece of work that must delight and inform any student of France under the Old Regime. It is likely to remain, for many years to come, the definitive work on the subject.'

    — Keith M. Baker, Stanford University; review of Bread, Politics and Political Economy in the Reign of Louis XV

  • 'This is the book finance experts have been waiting for. For those who seek concrete case studies and empirics on the transformative role of central banks since the financial crisis, this important volume amply fills this niche. This rigorous and novel investigation is a ‘must-read’ for all who either approve or disapprove of the unconventional instruments and practices used by central banks that have extended the mandate and blurred the traditional line between monetary and fiscal policy.'

    — Brigitte Young, University of Münster; review of Central Banking at a Crossroads

  • ‘Ali Kadri has written a book that is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the economics of the Arab world, combining a provocative political economy analysis with careful attention to detail. I strongly recommend it.’

    — John Weeks, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London; review of Arab Development Denied

  • 'The huge literature written by women of Jane Austen’s period has been the subject of a grand rediscovery in recent decades. This wonderful and scholarly book shows us with lively examples how women in the age of Jane Austen were allowed to perceive themselves and how four great women writers responded creatively and spiritually, through their use of the visual imagination in their writing. I read it with huge pleasure.'

    — Bestselling novelist Edward Rutherfurd; author of Sarum, London, New York and Paris, review of Visuality in the Novels of Austen, Radcliffe, Edgeworth and Burney

  • 'There is no better guide to the thicket of climate change economics than this insightful new book by Ackerman and Stanton. They uncover where the bodies are buried in conventional economic modeling, and reinvigorate the dialog with a commonsense approach to the economics of this civilizational challenge.'

    — Eban Goodstein, Director and Faculty, Bard MBA in Sustainability, and Director, Bard Center for Environmental Policy; review of Climate Change and Global Equity

  • 'One of the best books on engineering history to be published in many a moon.'

    — Nick Smith, Engineering & Technology Magazine; review of Iron Men

  • 'A breath-takingly brilliant tour de force.'

    — Sue Arnold, The Guardian; review of Eugene Onegin

  • 'Theoretically sophisticated, empirically grounded, and analytically rigorous – this is the most important work to be published on the HIV epidemic in decades.'

    — Richard Parker, Columbia University; review of Socialising the Biomedical Turn in HIV Prevention

  • ‘This is considered, nuanced scholarship of a high order, [with] surprising and illuminating results, far beyond what might have been thought possible … There are few works of cultural history that offer such a stark and startling dialogic opening-up.’

    — Professor Nicholas Jose, University of Adelaide; review of Australian Literature in the German Democratic Republic
