Foreign Affairs has just published my article, Who should run the Fed? “The fight over who will succeed Ben Bernanke as chair of the U.S. Federal Reserve rolls on, getting bigger and more tangled as it goes.

The current issue of Public Administration (December 2012) provides a review of The Logic of Discipline: “A tour de force which deserves to be read and debated.

The current issue of Journal of European Integration has a review of Logic of Discipline. “An excellent introduction to the issue of the attempt to remove policy from politics.
