A grab bag in the 300s

The 300s (that is, the decade from 300-309) seem like quite a grab bag; the subject is listed as social sciences, sociology, and anthropology, but in my library the range seems huge– and with few links among the books.  Not that there’s not a lot of interest– there is– but this decade certainly reads as a miscellany rather than a distinct category.  And, yes, I am an anthropologist, so I suppose I’m critiquing my own field.

306.362096, The Slave Ship: A Human History, by Marcus Rediker (2007).

306.44971, Sorry, I Don’t Speak French: Confronting the Canadian Crisis That Won’t Go Away, by Graham Fraser (2006).

307.7680974813, Last Harvest: How a Cornfield Became New Daleville: Real Estate Development in America from George Washington to the Builders of the Twenty-First Century, and Why We Live in Houses Anyway, by Witold Rybczynski (2007).
