KSG offers book tours on Web
The Kennedy School of Government (KSG) is offering book tours these days. Using the power of the Web, the school is highlighting recent publications and research from the KSG community on a wide variety of issues and disciplines, ranging from the economics of the environment to ethics in journalism. Each week, a different book is featured on the Virtual Book Tour Home Page (http://www.ksg.harvard.edu/virtualbooktour) along with a video presentation by the author discussing the book, reviews, related readings, and an interactive element such as a quick poll or online discussion. In addition, all visitors to the site can enter their names electronically in a weekly raffle for a signed copy of the book-of-the-week. The book tour is a unique opportunity to see the rich research work that is generated at the KSG. Besides KSG and Harvard participation, the Virtual Book Tour has attracted visitors from all over the world.
