…and which I recently added to my wish list:

  • Adam Smith in Beijing: Lineages of the 21st Century, by Giovanni Arrighi (check out the roundtable review of this one in a recent issue of the electronic Journal of World-Systems Research, including a review by my undergraduate advisor)
  • An Army at Dawn: The War in North Africa, 1942-1943, by Rick Atkinson
  • Alliance and Conflict: The World System of the Iñupiaq Eskimos, by Ernest Burch
  • Global Social Change: Historical and Comparative Perspectives, ed. by Christopher Chase-Dunn
  • Who Owns History?: Rethinking the Past in a Changing World, by Eric Foner
  • Imperial Nature: The World Bank and Struggles for Social Justice in the Age of Globalization, by Michael Goldman
  • Helmet for My Pillow: From Parris Island to the Pacific, by Robert Leckie
  • The Origins of Capitalism and the “Rise of the West”, by Eric Mielants
  • With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa, by E.B. Sledge
  • A World at Arms: A Global History of World War II, New Edition, by Gerhard Weinberg (as a teenager, I actually owned the first edition of this and only read a small part of it before giving it away)
