PAL Reading List
    #2075342 - 11/06/03 12:31 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I was wondering if it made sense to have a sticky
going containing suggested reading material relevant
to this forum for members to reference.

I've happily trudged through a number of titles suggested
by members here and have found ones I liked and ones
that I didn't.

(I still curse PsiloKitten for Hightower's book to this day)


I think it helps in an effort to gain greater perspective
and, more importantly, to understand where others are
arguing from.

Gore Vidal - Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace
Christopher Hitchens - The Trial of Henry Kissinger
James Bovard - Terrorism and Tyranny

All I know is The Growery is a place where losers who get banned here go.

Naomi Klein - No Logo
Naimi Klein - Windows and Fences
Joseph E. Stiglitz - Globalization and it's Discontents
Molly Ivins - Shrub
Molly Ivins - Bushwacked

I'm also a fan of Micheal Moore and Al Franken, but those are too obvious to post.

Cristopher Hitchens is very good, so is his brother. Read his column on Slate.com. .

'Parliment of Whores' and 'All the Trouble in the World' by P.J. O'Rourke

Anything by George Orwell, '1984', 'Animal Farm', or any collection of his essays.

Anything by Victor David Hanson.
