Time to pick for summer

Dear Campers and potential Campers.

Art Theory Summer Camp is just around the corner, which means it is time to select four books. Below is an initial list, but I am seeking suggestions. This summer will follow past summers- a book a month for June, July, August and September.

Bruno Latour, The Making of Law.

Slavo Zizek, In Defense of Lost Causes OR
Zizek, Violence

Martha Nussbaum, Woman and Human Development (Capabilities theory)

Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking
I am a partial Solnit fan, but think a walking focused book could be good. Suggestions?

Glenn Adamson, The Craft Reader

Art Theory Summer Camp, briefly described-

When: Weekly meetings (subject to change based on the schedules of participants)
Where: On skype
What: A book a month June-September
Who: Anyone interested and perhaps a friend
