What Karl's reading

After three years preparing The Triumph of William McKinley by reading very little but books, letters, articles and newspapers from the Gilded Age, I’m trying to get back into my regular routine, which I’ll chronicle here with an occasional review of what I’ve read.

My good friend Frank Lavin (former Under Secretary for International Trade at the U.S. Department of Commerce and previously U.S. Ambassador to Singapore) sent me a copy of his new book, EXPORT NOW: FIVE KEYS TO ENTERING NEW MARKETS, co-authored with Peter S. Cohan. It’s a little different from what you might typically find on my reading list...

This is another fine book from the University of Kansas series on presidential election.

I enjoyed Professor Greenblatt’s last book, WILL IN THE WORLD: HOW SHAKESPEARE BECAME SHAKESPEARE enormously but his latest volume, not so much...

Into every string of serious books a little, well, a little low brow must fall. I admit I’m a sucker for all things Cussler...
