My favourite academic books of 2019

At the end of each year I’ve posted a list of academic books I liked (2013, 2014, 2015, 20162017, 2018). The criteria was simply that they were published in that year (or late the previous year), and that I read and liked them. Some of these are books I reviewed or endorsed, and some are by friends and colleagues. It’s of course biased by my interests and prejudices. I’m sure I’ve missed loads of other great books, but I can at least say that these are all worth reading.

Other 2019 books that I’m planning to read, but either don’t yet have a copy or haven’t yet had time for, include…

And then there are some books I had some involvement with, mainly as author of a chapter, and so have excluded from the above list:

I should also say that some other very good things I’ve read this year have been in manuscript, and will hopefully be out in 2020.
