    Tilly is very good. I liked Durable Inequality a lot. I have a book of his on Historical Sociology I refer to from time to time, but haven’t read yet.

    My co-author on the NBER chapter on engineers co-authors with his son, Chris Tilly, on a regular basis.

    Well, I’m mostly interested in what he has to say about state formation; he was part of the broad debate on that subject.

    I forgot to add that I am reading a very, very short biography of Mao by Spence.
