Scholarship and Imagination: Alan Balfour’s Book List

This list is made up of three parts: first, books that have touched me in the last year or so, most related to supporting and stimulating my own writing; second, writers whose imaginations I can enter, whose books I can get lost within; and third, books that I often return to and continue to value.

Simon Schama

This is a glorious interweaving of scholarship and imagination. Equally good are Schama’s The Embarrassment of Riches: An Interpretation of Dutch Culture in the Golden Age, and and Citizens: A Chronicle of the French Revolution.
