From Post-Punk to Piketty: Summer Reading Recommendations from Policy Professors

The Public Policy & Governance Review

Alexandra Steindorff

With the school year coming to an end, I put out a call to University of Toronto’s School of Public Policy and Governance faculty asking them to share some reading suggestions for the summer. The response was enthusiastic and, as there were no guidelines or rules to follow, professors responded with single titles or more ambitious lists. Not surprisingly, the list compiled is long, challenging at times (it was inevitable that someone would recommend Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the 21st Century) and diverse, with a rich mixture of fiction, non-fiction, and even some film recommendations. Collectively, the titles assembled provide intellectual stimulation, while also showcasing the SPPG faculty’s love of reading. If you need some inspiration for your summer reading list, or if you just want to know what books are on the respective night tables of SPPG faculty, read on!
