If you like it, please consider buying a copy.

Why am I allowing you to copy the book for free?  And why is Yale University Press letting me?   To understand why I am doing it, watch this video by Jesse Dylan.  And if you want to  understand why it  makes economic sense to my publisher, read this short article.

Download the book as a pdf. (1.6Mb)

This is the book exactly as it is printed — same typesetting and pagination.  The pdf is searchable and has bookmarks for each chapter.  If clicking on the link doesn’t open the book in your browser — which takes a few seconds, depending on the speed of your connection –  right click the link and choose “Save As” (on a PC) or Control-click (on a Mac) and choose “Save Link As”.  Then double click the file you have downloaded.  If you are the impatient type, here is a link to a faster loading and slightly smaller version which you should be able to start reading even as it downloads.  The downside is, some people have experienced problems with it; (older versions of Acrobat, some versions of Mozilla Firefox, some Linux pdf viewers..)
