Reading List for Dr. Neiberg’s Graduate Students.

This list is a good starting point for the kinds of books I would expect you to read as a graduate student here at Southern Miss. These are not necessarily the “best” books, and I certainly do not agree with all of the arguments in them, but the ones whose arguments I would want graduate students to know. Of course, every student’s list will be tailored to his or her individual interests and needs.
