Reviews

Hilariously self-deprecating and elegantly written, this 'manual' on How to Get Grant Money in the Humanities and Social Sciences is strangely powerful. It draws on painful personal experience and the advice and expertise of nine senior scholars. Yet, it is also a cunning reflection on the virtues of self-awareness, stubbornness, and community. - Jorge Ca izares-Esguerra, author of How to Write the History of the New World This uniquely valuable book helps make it possible for students and scholars to transform their love for their subject from something essentially inward and passive into something that puts their love into effect in the real world. - Edward Mendelson, Columbia University
