Bibliography dumps


Recommended Posts

Hey everybody, I'm a big fan of long lists of books to read, and as the holidays approach, I think we all need to sit back and read some books. Any reading lists on any topics are welcome on this thread. Old biblos for class, research, anything of the like.

Please excuse the formatting.  I was playing "deconstruct the syllabus and bib." Because some of the books seem "off" based on the class title, I included a brief description of the paper they go with.  I have some other bibs, but I don't feel like digging through Dropbox right now. All secondary sources
