Name the Best Academic Books of the 90s

This October, Lingua Franca will celebrate its tenth anniversary with a retrospective look at academia in the 1990s. From Paglia to Pinker, Greenblatt to GESO, we aim to cover it all. To that end, we invite you to tell us about the heartbreaking works of staggering academic genius that got you through the decade.

What scholarly books were most important to you? Which made you think in new and worthwhile ways? Please choose up to three books that were first published between 1990 and 1999; you may also provide a few sentences explaining why you think any given book on your list belongs among the decade's best. The results will appear in LF's anniversary issue.
