Book Reviews

1. Chris Blattman was not impressed with Antony Beevor’s The Battle for Spain: “The book was a gatling gun of names and dates. Completely bewildering. I put it down quickly. Any other suggestions? I like my history to have a coherent narrative.” (My review of The Battle for Spain is here; I had a more positive impression, although the large cast of characters can be confusing at times.)

2. Noah Smith reviews David Graeber’s Debt: The First 5000 Years.
