      Dear Colleague.

      I thought you would be interested to know that the book MEGAPROJECTS AND
      RISK: AN ANATOMY OF AMBITION by Nils Bruzelius, Werner Rothengatter, and
      myself was recently published by Cambridge University Press.

      The book offers a political and economic anthropology of megaprojects. I
      include the Table of Contents below for your information. First chapter,
      etc. may be found at:
      UK: http://uk.cambridge.org/sociology/megaprojects/
      US: http://us.cambridge.org/features/megaprojects/

      Our research is ongoing and we would appreciate any information you may
      have on megaprojects we could include in future research.

      I hope this is useful. Please feel free to forward this message to any
      relevant person or listserv. If this mail is of no interest to you, I
      apologise for the inconvenience. Also apologies for any cross posting.
