    Thanks for the list, I'll add it to my growing one.

    You've listed this year's main academic texts (and it has been a good year for these), but have missed the non-academic but accessible 'Where the Truth Lies' edited by Julia Hobsbawm. (At least you could carry this one to the beach, unlike some of the other tomes...)

    Hobsbawm is top of my in-tray, Richard - bound for Skye. Thought I'd wait until I had read it before passing judgment...(although I will admit it is already on a couple of my recommended reading lists).

    As well as being beach-manageable, Where the Truth Lies, has another great advantage of being vaguely affordable (£7.79 on Amazon) - the list above comes in at around £200.

    Anyone who hasn't read Where the Truth Lies might wish to read my review of it here:
