    Hi all.

    wondering if anyone can recommend me some decent reads so that I can have something substantial to say on my PS this year! Applying for economics bsc, however have never studied the subject at school and am frankly quite a laymen. Pop.economics books don't really appeal to me, however I am very interested in econ. history having recently read the rise and fall of global empires by John Darwin. I also really enjoy learning about issues in development and have read a few books by Sen and Abhijit Banarjee. If anyone could recommend me some similar tomes it would be much appreciated. Also taking a gap year, in which I plan to study A level econ, so recommended text books and study guides will also be useful!

    Thanks in advance.
