My favourite academic books of 2018. As with previous years – 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 – these are shaped by my interests, books that are sent to me, ones from publishers I review for, etc. etc. I’ve not read all the 2018 books I’ve bought or been sent, so while there are doubtless many other good books published this year, I can at least say that these are all worth reading.
- Chris Barrett, Early Modern English Literature and the Poetics of Cartographic Anxiety (OUP)
- Miguel de Beistegui, The Government of Desire: A Genealogy of the Liberal Subject (Chicago)
- Andrea Mubi Brighenti and Mattias Kärrholm (eds.) Urban Walls: Political and Cultural Meanings of Vertical Structures and Surfaces (Routledge) – which I endorsed
- Georges Canguilhem, Œuvres complètes Tome V : Histoire des sciences, épistémologie, commémorations 1966-1995, edited by Camille Limoges (Vrin)
- Terrell Carver, Marx (Polity)
