Seymour E. Harris is the only man who has served with all three national committees of experts appointed to study the New England economy within the past two years. His book is the first full-scale analysis of the area’s economic problems—and it will create controversy. He states vigorously just what the more important causes of New England’s economic difficulties have been, and shows just how she can now fulfill her unrealized potentialities.

Jacket: Memory Speaks: On Losing and Reclaiming Language and Self, by Julie Sedivy, from Harvard University Press

Lost in Translation: Reclaiming Lost Language

In Memory Speaks: On Losing and Reclaiming Language and Self, Julie Sedivy sets out to understand the science of language loss and the potential for renewal. Sedivy takes on the psychological and social world of multilingualism, exploring the human brain’s capacity to learn—and forget—languages at various stages of life. She argues that the struggle to remain connected to an ancestral language and culture is a site of common ground: people from all backgrounds can recognize the crucial role of language in forming a sense of self.
