The Subprime Solution: How Today's Global Financial Crisis Happened, and What to Do about It
Robert J. Shiller, the Arthur M. Okun Professor of Economics
Princeton University Press, $16.95

Well known for predicting the bursting of the stock market and housing bubbles, economist Shiller provides a concise analysis of how we got into the subprime mortgage mess. He offers a set of "commonsense short-run fixes and deeper long-term improvements" to remedy the situation.


The Woman's Heart: An Owner's Guide
John A. Elefteriades ’72, ’76MD, the William W. L. Glenn Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Yale School of Medicine; and Teresa Caulin-Glaser
Prometheus Books, $19.95

Heart disease is the number-one killer of women in this country. The authors, both skilled cardiologists, offer a comprehensive, readable, and potentially life-saving owner's manual.

Holding Bishops Accountable: How Lawsuits Helped the Catholic Church Confront Clergy Sexual Abuse 
Timothy D. Lytton ’87, ’91JD
Harvard University Press, $35

Albany Law School professor Lytton shows how litigation has helped the victims of clergy sexual abuse, and led to "institutional reforms that make it less likely that the Catholic Church" -- and other organizations charged with caring for children -- "will ever again facilitate or conceal the crimes of serial pedophiles."

House of Wits: An Intimate Portrait of the James Family 
Paul Fisher ’93PhD
Henry Holt, $35

Novelist Henry, psychologist and philosopher William, and feminist Alice were three of the most famous members of an American dynasty that, writes historian Fisher, was "somewhere between the Alcotts and the Royal Tenenbaums." He tells the family's remarkable -- and "curiously contemporary" -- story.
