I've got the book, but haven't read it yet. I bought it because of a brilliant and detailed review by (as I remember) David Runciman in the London Review of Books of now more than a year ago. The review is almost worth providing to students. Whatever worth the history is, the back of the book is one of the rare attempts to reconcile security and economics (the people who do these two subjects ignore each other and have completely different vocabularies and outlooks).

It was recently recommended to me, but it seems rather long and idiosyncratic so I'm curious if others have used it in class. Anthony Chase Occidental College
