Course Materials

  • The books are available from the Jeffrey Amherst Bookstore textbook annex behind the storee in the Center of Amherst
  • Blind Ambition is out of print and there may not be any copies at the bookstore; those who do not buy Blind Ambition there should order it soon through an online seller of used books such as alibris or amazon. Be sure to purchase all the books before "extras" are sent back to the publishers.
  • Access to Rights on Trial (which is also out of print) will be arranged through the University library and inter-library loan, and you will be informed in November about how this loan program will work
  • We will determine on September 10th whether you should buy "An Enemy of the People" or "Galileo"
