There’s growing chatter online about this (which I first heard thanks to the Complete Review).
This discussion is happening at the Open University:
ENTHUSIASM FOR A NEW BOOK REVIEW:
by Jeffrey Herf
Thanks very much to Cass Sunstein, Steven Pinker, Eric Rauchway, Linda Hirshman, Richard Stern, and David Bell. I’m very glad to see their enthusiasm for the idea of a new book review. They offer a host of good practical suggestions and lessons from past efforts. The practicalities of a new publication are the most difficult issues. I hope our discussion will come to the attention of one of people with the will and the means to respond to the problem I described and that my Open University colleagues agree should be addressed.
