    Recent circumstances have lead me to re-read "The Road to Serfdom" by F. A. Hayek. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the social sciences, or societies and politics in general. I'm looking for my copy of The Federalist Papers now...

    "On Human Nature" by Edward Wilson
    "You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit."

    Reason is, and ought only to be the slave of the passions, and can never pretend to any other office
    than to serve and obey them. - David Hume

    Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce: oh, SO goofy. But snickering aside about the Mary-sueness, the book doesn't romanticize the whole thing and plays it straight all the way. And they are so feudal; it's quaint almost. Admirable still is that Alanna has problems and she solves them rather efficiently.

    "Our Town" by Thronton Wilder: Gonna need to look up a performance of this.

    The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman - his version of Kiplingís Jungle Books

    Zeroville by Steve Erickson - features a salvation-seeking protagonist who shaves his head and has Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift tatooed on it.

    Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson - good luck with this one; Iíve never written more copious notes on the pages of a novel

    Lately reading books by Kent Harrington. He writes noir fiction from an informed POV, having been actually involved in law enforcement re: terror and organized crime. His first book had a bit of hinkyness to it ( "Dark Ride" ) but I still found it entertaining, and the books since that have only gotten better.
    "The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
    Reichsfuhrer Herman Goering at the Nuremburg trials.
