Vanishing America

Species Extinction, Racial Peril, and the Origins of

Miles A. Powell

shaped one another."

Collecting the World

Hans Sloane and the Origins of the British Museum
James Delbourgo

Counting and the Course of
Human Cultures

★ A Guardian Book of the Week
★ A Times Book of the Week
"Delbourgo's book is both a magnificent scholarly coup
and an enthralling read. It explores Sloane's voluminous
manuscript catalogues, which no one except Sloane and
his helpers has used before, and it conveys the excitement
of original research as well as the thrill of tracking exotic
curiosities to their source."

Inside the Lost Museum
Curating, Past and Present
Steven Lubar

In doing so, the book offers a scholarly snapshot of the
role that museums have played throughout history, as well
as the challenges they face today."

Numbers and the
Making of Us
Caleb Everett

★ A Smithsonian Best Science
Book of the Year

"Fascinating. . .This is bold,
heady stuff. . .The breadth
of research Everett covers
is impressive, and allows
him to develop a narrative
that is both global and
compelling. He is as much
at home describing the
niceties of experimental work
in cognitive science as he
is discussing arcane tribal
rituals and the technical
details of grammar. . . It is
often poignant, and makes
a virtue of the author's
experiences with some of
the indigenous peoples he
describes. . .Numbers is eyeopening, even eye-popping."
-Vyvyan Evans,
New Scientist
