Publicness bibliography

A few of you asked for my bibliography of sources for my research on publicness. Here are some key books so far (I don’t mean to show off with the German entries; I’ll be lucky if I can dig into them but I hope to try). Dates (usually) refer to first publication. This does not include many newspaper articles (many great ones from the NYTimes at the turn of the last century), blog posts, and online essays.
