《泰德-休斯:未授权写作》Ted Hughes: The Unauthorised Life
作者:Jonathan Bate

It is hard to write a literary account of Ted Hughes without writing about the life, as many authors have found. Five years in the making, this biography began as an authorised life only to become unauthorised when the author fell out with Hughes's widow, Carol, over how much personal detail to include, prompting the poet's estate to withdraw its co-operation.
许多作者都发现,不写他的生活,就很难写泰德-修斯的文学史。这部历史五年的传记一开始是得到授权的,作者后来就个人细节问题与修斯的遗孀卡罗尔发生纠纷,终止了合作,结果成了一部未授权的传记。

《发明自然:洪堡的新世界》The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt's New World

《国家的公共财富:公产左右经济》The Public Wealth of Nations: How Management of Public Assets Can Boost or Bust Economic Growth
作者:Dag Detter and Stefan Fölster

Governments have trillions of dollars in assets, from companies to forests, but they are often poorly managed. Two investment experts explain how things could be improved by ring-fencing assets from political meddling in independent holding companies. Professional managers could sweat them as if they were privately owned.
政府有数以万亿计的资产,从公司到森林,可常常管理不善。两个投资专家解释了在对独立控股公司进行政治干预中,如何运用栅栏原则提升效率,让专业管理人团队像私营企业主一样卖力气。

《别人的钱:金融的买卖》Other People's Money: The Real Business of Finance
作者:John Kay

If the world is to avoid future banking collapses, or at least limit their economic impact, people need to think clearly about what the finance sector is for. This book does the job.

《不公:何为?》Inequality: What Can Be Done?
作者:Anthony Atkinson

A crunchy book that analyses policy discussions in detail but avoids dullness, thanks to its unapologetic support for robust government intervention.

《经济法则:悲观科学的对与错》Economics Rules: The Rights and Wrongs of the Dismal Science

经济学家要解释的还有很多。Rodrik指出了经济学家没法解释的东西,剔除了同事们异想天开的东西。

《大竞技场:举办奥运与世界杯背后的经济赌博》Circus Maximus: The Economic Gamble Behind Hosting the Olympics and the World Cup
作者:Andrew Zimbalist

Any country thinking of hosting an international sporting jamboree should read this book to see what a bad deal the IOC and FIFA seek to foist on them. Hamburg has just voted against bidding for the 2024 Olympic games. Clever move.
想要举办一场国际体育盛会的国家应该读读这本书,看看国际奥委会和国际足联如何捞钱。汉堡刚刚投票否决了申办2024年奥运会,太聪明了。

《文化、社会与旅行:性格之路》Culture, society and travel:The Road to Character
作者:David Brooks

The author, a columnist for the New York Times, clearly thinks people are too full of themselves. A thoughtful polemic on why the self-regarding Facebook generation should move from narcissism to thoughtfulness. They'd be much happier.
纽约时报专栏作者显然认为人们太自以为是了。自私自利的社交媒体一代为何该从自恋转向深刻,本书给出了深刻的讨论。他们本该比现在更幸福。

《交易未完:工作与家庭》Unfinished Business: Women Men Work Family
作者:Anne-Marie Slaughter

《拔毛史》Plucked: A History of Hair Removal

Most of Earth's mammals possess luxuriant fur. Only one seeks to remove it. A curious account of hair-erasing, and why people have tried clamshell razors, lasers, lye depilatories, tweezers, waxes, threading and electrolysis to try and free themselves from hairiness.
大多数地球上的哺乳动物都有豪华的皮毛。只有一种动物拔毛。剃毛的历史引人入胜,人们为什么要用蛤壳、激光、碱液、镊子、蜡和电针去脱除体毛呢?
