Reading list for first minister’s attention
A think-tank has drawn up a summer reading list for the first minister aimed at stimulating debate about Scotland and the wider world.
The list of seven books has been put together for Nicola Sturgeon by the David Hume Institute.
It said the list was intended “as a fresh way to stimulate debate about the state of the nation and the world”.
The list includes Poverty Safari , Darren McGarvey’s acclaimed study of deprivation, and After Europe, Ivan Krastev’s examination of the state of the EU.
The other books recommended are Fire and Ashes by Michael Ignatieff, Testosterone Rex by Cordelia Fine, The Passion of Harry Bingo by Peter Ross, The Infidel and the Professor by Dennis C. Rasmussen and The Undoing Project by Michael Lewis.
The institute’s director Jane-Frances Kelly said: “Each bookoffers something new, interesting and important to say about Scotland, the world, and our future.”
