The Cover

So, in the end, it’s this one. The logo gets in the way but you get the general idea.


Unlike the waterfalls, it isn’t peaceful, and it definitely would have been a letdown to announce something peaceful on the cover and then hit people over the head with liquid capital.

  1. It’s like a grim Mary Poppins. I like it!

    OT: There was a <a href=”’>giant fire in West London last night.

    At least six people are dead and dozens injured after a massive fire rapidly tore through a 24-story apartment building in west London in the early hours of Wednesday, police said.
    All 24 floors of Grenfell Tower in North Kensington were swiftly engulfed, trapping residents in their homes and reportedly forcing some to jump to escape the flames. London’s fire chief, Dany Cotton, said the blaze was “unprecedented” in her 29 years of service.
    Residents had reported concerns about fire safety in recent years, and questions were raised about whether a recent refurbishment of the building, in which exterior cladding was installed, contributed to the rapid spread of the fire.
    Firefighters continued to frantically search the building for anyone still alive.

    Gunman fires on Alexandria park during GOP baseball practice; lawmaker Scalise among wounded

    A gunman opened fire Wednesday morning on a baseball practice at a park in Alexandria involving Republican members of Congress, injuring several people including at least one lawmaker, Steve Scalise, the majority whip, according to police and a congressman.
    Alexandria police would confirm only that a shooting at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park had occurred and that one person was in custody….
    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) tweeted that a “shooter attacked a GOP baseball practice. Rifle. 50+ shots fired. 5 hit including Steve Scalise. I am not shot.” He estimated 50 to 100 shots were fired.


  2. May be, it’s a weird comment, but if you analyze Spanish lit, why is this book in English? Won’t 99% of intended readers know Spanish?


    1. We are hoping for a wider readership, which this book definitely deserves. I mean, you are not a Spanish-speaker but you’ve enjoyed the nation-state posts, haven’t you? Some of those posts were almost directly copied from the book. Everybody in my field who can write in English prefers to publish books in English because you reach a much wider readership. There is no reason why scholars in say, German, or Japanese or whatever can’t use my book in their research. Because the whole point of the book is that these phenomena are global in nature.
