195 [Spending Time]
Spending Time: The Most Valuable Resource
/ Hamermesh, Daniel S. 232 p. Oxford, 2019:05.
ISBN:9780190853839 \2,820
Americans now work more than people in other rich countries, but as recently as the late 1970s they worked no more than others; and they also work longer into older age. Men and women do different things at different times of the day, which affects how well-off they feel. Both the arrival of children and retirement create major shocks to existing time uses, with differences between the sexes.

196 [Terrorism]
States of Terror: History, Theory, Literature
/ Simpson, David. 288 p. Chicago UP, 2019:03.
ISBN:9780226600222 pap \3,712
How have we come to depend so greatly on the words terror and terrorism to describe broad categories of violence?  David Simpson offers here a philology of terror, tracking the concept’s long, complicated history across literature, philosophy, political science, and theology from Plato to NATO.
