Upon his death on October 6, 1959, Bernard Berenson left to Nicky Mariano the vast collection of correspondence which he had accumulated during the nearly sixty years of his residence at Villa I Tatti. On the centennial of Berenson’s birth, The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, now established at I Tatti, arranged to publish this inventory of the correspondence in order to make available to interested scholars a knowledge of its contents. The inventory is divided into two parts: all correspondents are listed, with cross references, in Part One; letters written by Bernard or Mary Berenson, or by Nicky Mariano, are listed in Part Two by recipient.

Jacket: The Coming Good Society: Why New Realities Demand New Rights, by William F. Schulz and Sushma Raman, from Harvard University Press

Q&A with William F. Schulz and Sushma Raman, authors of The Coming Good Society: Why New Realities Demand New Rights

As times change so must we as a society, and that includes our conception of rights, say William F. Schulz and Sushma Raman, whose new book, The Coming Good Society: Why New Realities Demand New Rights, came out just as Black Lives Matter protesters filled the streets this summer. We spoke with them about the current view—and the future—of human rights. How do you understand the purpose of rights? What function do they serve in a society?
