2014 Montclair Book

Each year, a faculty advisory committee selects a book to be read by all incoming first-year students before they arrive.  The goals of this program are to:

  • Provide a common intellectual experience
  • Engage in interdisciplinary dialogue and debate
  • Build community around a shared understanding of relevant issues
  • Celebrate the written word
  • Offer opportunities for students to reflect on their roles as readers and learners
  • Encourage campus-wide engagement with the book’s theme

For our fourth selection, the Montclair Book Faculty Advisory Committee chose Scarcity, by Sendhil Mullainathan and Eldar Shafir. We hope you enjoy reading Scarcity as much as we did! Here is an index of key terms
