In the process of finishing my Fukuyama book, whilst starting two other ones, namely Trainspotting (gotta love Irvine Welsh) and Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre. The latter is supposed to be a good introduction to Existentialism..let's see what this is all about

All Americans should read this book:

Silencing Political Dissent by Nancy Chang

It discusses how post-september 11 anti-terrorism measures threaten our civil liberties.

Look into the "Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" if you want something sketchy to ruminate over.

Hegel was also an interesting cat. Thesis ~ Anti-Thesis/Synthesis...

How about American industrialists funding Communism. There's much that the public doesn't know! How could we? We're kept in the dark.

All of the following have been published in the last 10 yrs:

Best Fiction:
Jamaica Kincaid "Autobiography of my Mother"
Philip Roth "American Pastoral"
Peter Taylor "Summons to Memphis"
Jeffrey Eugenides "The Virgin Suicides

Literary Biography:
Philip Roth "Patrimony"

Collection of Short Stories:
A.S. Byatt "The Matisse Stories"

Books of 'Dissent,' broadly construed:
Naomi Klein "No Logo"
Robert McChesney "Rich Media, Poor Democracy"
Nancy Snow "Propaganda Inc." (a 60 pp. pamphlet)
Christopher Hitchens "The Missionary Position"
anything by Chomsky (it's just not fair how smart he is)

Cartoon/Satire:
Anything by Tom Tomorrow

Books to name-drop at cocktail parties (and whose good ideas get lost in impenetrably esoteric lingo):
Gyatri Spivak "A Critique of Postcolonial Reason"
Homi Bhabha "The Location of Culture"

American History (it's what I study)
Thomas Sugrue "Origins of the Urban Crisis" (a book everyone at Fox news should be beaten over the head with)
Glenda Gilmore "Gender and Jim Crow"
Matthew Jacobson "Whiteness of a Different Color"
Mike Wallace and Ted Burroughs "Gotham" a sentimental fave
Alan Brinkley "End of Reform"

P.S. Ayn Rand's writing is as awful as her politics
P.P.S. There's a reason the independent press voted Tom Friedman the journalist who has traveled the most yet learned the least...

okay, this is fiction, but it spans the 'lifetime of civilization' and is a great read:

Tom Robbins 'Jitterbug Perfume' and connects history and religion in ways never thot poss

few more:

Richard Preston 'The Cobra Event' and 'The Hot Zone' both go along somewhat with the Aids discussion. very interesting, very engaging. Cobra is mostly ficticious while Zone recounts the short history of Ebola, but is better than that damn Dustin Hoffman movie with the monkey|
