Subject: fundamental books?
I would very much appreciate recommendations of books or articles you
regard as fundamental to an understanding of each of the following
disciplines or discipinary groups:
Social sciences (including at least sociology, anthropology and economics)
In each case I am interested only in works that address an intelligent but
possibly ignorant audience. My guess is that the job could only be done by
a leading figure of the day, e.g. in the case of anthropology, Clifford
Geertz. I am asking the questions: what is each discipline all about? how
does it construct the world? what does it have to offer? I am interested
quite specifically in what each has to offer us in humanities computing,
but I'd rather not eliminate any possibilities at the moment.
If you think I have forgotten a discipline or group for which such a book
or article exists, please let me know.
