We’ve just launched our Best of Summer Reading site at Yale University Press! Our new page features a host of titles perfect to slip right in your beach bag as you head out to enjoy the sun and surf.
Delve into Tennent H. Bagley’s Spy Wars and uncover details from the CIA officer who handled the famous Nosenko case. If biographies are your interest, Wayne Franklin’s recently released James Fenimore Cooper is the first to draw on complete family archives of this influential literary figure. Award-winning books round out the list, with Adrian Goldsworthy’s Caesar: Life of a Colossus receiving honors as 2007 Society for Military History Distinguished book as well as Best Book of 2006 by Amazon, and Pulitzer-nominated John Wilkes: The Scandalous Father of Civil Liberty by Arthur H. Cash. (For more on Goldsworthy, click here to listen to his podcast.)
