The end of summer, projects finished and unfinished.

I got through:

“French Theory: How Foucault, Derrida, Deleuze & Co. transformed the intellectual life of the United States” by Francois Cusset
“The Slow Plague: A geography of the AIDS pandemic” by Peter Gould
“The Myth of Sisyphus” by Albert Camus
“The Tipping Point: How little things can make a big difference” by Malcolm Gladwell
“Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson
“Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography” by Roland Barthes
“On Photography” by Susan Sontag
“International Relations and the Problem of Difference” by Naaem Inayatullah and David Blaney
“The Conduct of Inquiry in International Relations: Philosophy of science and its implications for the study of world politics” by Patrick Thaddeus Jackson

…And I’m about halfway through Dani Rodrik’s “The Globalization Paradox: Democracy and the future of the world economy” and Michel Foucault’s “Society Must Be Defended: Lectures at the College de France, 1975-1976”. Whether or not these fall by the wayside or get finished over the next week is somewhat uncertain.

The ones that I didn’t get through that I meant to are:

“The Strategy of Conflict” by Thomas Schelling
“The Gift: Forms and functions of exchange in archaic societies” by Marcel Mauss
“After Victory: Institutions, strategic restraint, and the rebuilding of order after major wars” by G. John Ikenberry
“No One’s World: The West, the rising rest, and the coming global turn” by Charles Kupchan
