Yum, new books

Made a trip to my favorite little bookstore in DC, Bridge Street in Georgetown. Here's what I picked up:

Elias Canetti's masterpiece Crowds and Power

Giorgio Agamben's Remnants of Auschwitz

Adi Ophir's The Order of Evil (a contributor to my forthcoming volume on torture)

Richard Bernstein's The Abuse of Evil

None of this is the kind of stuff I usually read during the semester. I'm looking forward to this.... Recommendations forthcoming.
