Wow that's got to have an interesting tie in, especially since it would appear to be counter-productive for industrialists to sponsor communism!

Anyway if you like astronomy at all read:

The Whole Shebang A State of the Universe(s) by Timothy Ferris: It's a little more in-depth than carl sagan and stephen hawking but not over your head.

And my current history read:

Carnage and Culture by Victor Davis Hanson: I disagree with some of his premises but he presents an interesting argument as to why some cultures are are inherentely successful in war.

-'catcher in the rye' by salinger is my all time favourite...
-'in cold blood' by truman capote excellent issues dealing with the death penalty.
-'junky' william burroughs...his writing style is unique to say the least.
-'don't let's go to the dogs tonight' alexandra fuller- i can not recomend this book more- an excellent story about a briton growing up in Rhodesia as it turned to zimbabwe (i have a slight african obsession)
-'a good man is hard to find'- flannery o'conner- great short story
-'on the road'- jack kerouac. great story about being yourself and growing into yourself...if you like catcher in the rye you will like this book as long as you are over the age of 22.
-'all quiet on the western front'- read it NOW it is war time....i leave my thoughts at that....

i like a lot of poetry and plays but does that count as a book? i see it as literature- i just read a play by lessing 'emilia galotti' i really liked it.

and my favourite poem at the moment- 'der Erlkönig' by goethe. but it must be read in german.

I know it's already been said, but damn George Orwell - 1984 is a good book! I've picked it up last week, and it's so engaging.

War is peace. Eurasia is afghanistan. Eastasia is Iraq.

The following site contains several free ebooks including Orwell's "1984," Huxley's "Brave New World" and de Jasay's "The State."

Johnsmith, I would have posted it earlier if I'd known you'd needed it.

It should be on the left side of the screen as you scroll down--it's divided into individual chapters as opposed to a big file.

wow i read through this entire post and nobody has mentioned any works by shakespeare. once you get past the old english and start reading it you will be amazed by how he uses language. i was fortunate enough to take a class on it last semester and my prof opened my eyes to all of the symbolism and deeper themes within his plays. if you read closely you will appreciate why he is the greatest western writer of all time.

kurt vonnegut is also amazing, i would highly recommend slaughterhouse five.

i hated catch-22, what did you guys see in it?

Be Cool!

Question: According to survey's, Ayn Rand's 'Atlas Shrugged' is second on the list of books that have most influenced college students (The Bible's #1). What's it about, and what makes it have that sort of effect on college students?

oh and two quickies:

'Common Ground' by J. Anthony Lukas-wow, wonderful history, written in a biographical style told from multiple angles, that dissects the events that made up the years of de-segregating public schools in Boston. Must read for anyone interested in social history (or actually, anyone who enjoys a good read; I couldn't put it down, over 600 pages and I finished it in under two wks)

'Ways of Seeing' by John Berger. Excellent introduction to approaching art from an ideological perspective. Very short, but the points come across crystal clear.
