Two Cool Reviews

The good folks at Kirkus Reviews have chimed in about two Fall non-fiction books we're psyched about. You may need a subcription to enjoy the whole review, but you can have a sip. HOW LANGUAGE WORKS by David Crystal: "A virtual encyclopedia of language, so broad in scope that its subtitle can only hint at its contents." And DANGEROUS KNOWLEDGE Orientalism and Its Discontents by Robert Irwin: "Latter-day Orientalists and students of intellectual history will benefit greatly from this study, but so also will others charting the discourse between East and West." Enjoy your weekend!--Jim
