Michiko Kakutani reviews Elizabeth Kolbert's The Sixth Extinction in this morning's New York Times:
“Arresting…[Kolbert’s] writing here is the very model of explanatory journalism, making highly complex theories and hypotheses accessible to even the most science-challenged of readers, while providing a wonderfully tactile sense of endangered (or already departed) species and their shrinking habitats….Kolbert shows in these pages that she can write with elegiac poetry about the vanishing creatures of this planet.” – Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

The Economist reviews Our Political Nature by Avi Tuschman:
"Sages from philosophers to pollsters have long struggled to explain what makes voters lean left or right. As political animals, people are unpredictable. Why do conservative poor people vote against their economic interests? Why do privileged young intellectuals stump for the welfare state?
