When I was book review editor at Social Forces, I developed a pet peeve: book titles that used phrases like “for a new century,” “for the 21st century,” and so on. If the only reason your book is of interest is because of the changing digits at the end of the year, you should probably find a new topic! Alternatively, how about:
Democratic Innovations for This Afternoon
Challenges for Inequality After Sunday
I just got word–about which I’m very excited–that Nikolas Rose will be visiting UNC in April:
