Review and Interview Roundup

A grab baKumarsmallg post today, featuring some of the great reviews our books have received recently and some fascinating interviews with our authors.

  First up, Amitava Kumar's much-praised A Foreigner Carrying in the Crook of His Arm a Tiny Bomb  gets more accolades, this time in Bookslut, where DaisyRussiareader Rockwell calls it "eloquent analysis of the weird cocktail of buffoonery, violence and inefficacy that is the War on Terror" in an interesting piece on how Americans think about Pakistan. Also recently reviewed was our latest book in the World  Readers series, The Russia Reader, edited by Adele Barker and Bruce Grant. The Morning Star says the book is "both well written and informative . . . beautifully illustrated throughout" and "refreshing."

We also want to share two great podcast interviews. Judith Armatta Armatta talks with Transitions Online about the her book Twilight of Impunity and the lasting legacy of the trial of Slobodan Milosevic. And Roberto Abadie introduces the folks at the CUNY Graduate Center to the scary world of pharmaceutical test subjects, the theme of his book The Professional Guinea Pig
