A couple of new books that are not quite on the topic of this blog, but are of related interest to regulars on this blog:
Michael Tomasello, Why We Cooperate is a new title from one of this blog's heroes. I have reported much of this before, but it is succinct and clear. Also includes commentary from other scholars.
Ray Jackendoff, Language, Consciousness, Culture: Essays on Mental Structure comes from a generative grammarian who has found his own way since his school days with Chomsky. The book has been in hardcover for a while, but is now in paperback.
