Check This Out: Zombies in the Library


Braaaaiiinnnnsssss… braaaaaiiiiinnnssss…

I know, I know what you are thinking.  You all are using your brains so much during the semester that you cannot bear to read a blog post about them.  Well, you’re in luck!  This here is a post about zombies.  Zombies that are IN THE LIBRARY and you should totally check them out!

In the past few years we’ve seen zombie films and television series abound and along with that comes books about zombies.  Here are a few that you may want to take a look at if you have a thing for zombies and want to mix up your love of them with your academic pursuits.  It is possible.  I swear.

Jacket.aspx Zombie Economics takes the reader through the origins, consequences, and implosion of a system of ideas whose time has come and gone. These beliefs–that deregulation had conquered the financial cycle, that markets were always the best judge of value, that policies designed to benefit the rich made everyone better off–brought us to the brink of disaster once before, and their persistent hold on many threatens to do so again. Because these ideas will never die unless there is an alternative, Zombie Economics also looks ahead at what could replace market liberalism, arguing that a simple return to traditional Keynesian economics and the politics of the welfare state will not be enough–either to kill dead ideas, or prevent future crises.”
Thinking Dead: What the Zombie Apocalypse Means , edited by Murali Balaji, examines various aspects of the zombie apocalypse scenario from the perspective of a variety of theoretical frameworks. Essays in the collection shed light on why we are so obsessed with the undead. This is a cutting-edge volume for the growing scholarship on media representations of zombies. jacket2
