The most important academic books to me from 2014

A non-systematic, alphabetically ordered list of the academic books published this year I read and most liked – the photo is of some that were to hand.

books of 2014

I’m sure there are plenty I’ve missed, and some of the ones that came out this year I bought or was sent are still waiting to be read – including Quentin Skinner, Forensic Shakespeare and Martin Empson, Land & Labour: Marxism, Ecology and Human History from the pile above. Two books I was looking forward to – Mick Dillon’s Biopolitics of Security in the 21st Century and Bob Jessop’s The State: Past, Present, Future – slipped to 2015. Both are on order.

These are the ones I liked in 2013…  the novels I read this year are here and here; and the music I most liked here.

  1. Ah, that book of Dillon’s… remember I had an Amazon pre-order cancelled in the summer of 2010 or so.
