About meI'm a professor of political theory at the University of Chicago and a compulsive maker of lists. I probably spend more time reading books than pursuing them, but just barely.
About my library• Mostly a working scholarly library, centered on the humanities and humanistic social sciences, especially political theory and political science, philosophy, Marxism and critical social theory, modern (particulary 20th-century) European and American political, social, cultural, and intellectual history, radical politics, classics and ancient history, Judaica, literary theory and criticism, and art history. Also includes the expected assortment of novels, poetry, cookbooks, travel guides, and other merit badges of the late modern bourgeoisie.
