Short

The final volume in the series, this catalogue follows the general plan of volumes II–IV but differs from them in its use of the sylloge format for the catalogue proper. The collection of Palaeologan coins at Dumbarton Oaks is by far the largest that exists, and the field is one in which great advances have been made over the last half-century. This volume supersedes the previous accounts of Palaeologan coinage, and is definitive in its field.

Part I includes the introduction, appendices, and bibliography, while Part II continues with the catalogue, concordances, and indexes.

Jacket: The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, by Anthony Abraham Jack, from Harvard University Press

Book Club Spotlight: The Privileged Poor

As students around the world deliberate their options for further education, only made more challenging in a pandemic, we’re reminded that getting in is only half the battle. In The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, Anthony Abraham Jack asks how—and why—do disadvantaged students struggle at elite colleges? What can schools can do differently if these students are to thrive? As back to school season begins, we spoke to two university book clubs that read and discussed The Privileged Poor this summer.
