What We're Reading in Summer 2019

The Center for Global Development's annual summer reading list, presenting a selection of recommendations from CGD researchers and staff, is back with more ways to explore, analyze, or escape the world around you (reader's choice!). Swing back to the 1860s to visit New Zealand during the gold rush or stroll around Lincoln's Washington. Step into mythology for a new take on one of the world's earliest feminists. Or if you're more forward-looking, visit a future where technology has allowed us to achieve immortality... of a sort.
