Activism and psychology books

I know bold plans to read and discuss The Moral Landscape did not go as smoothly as one might have hoped, interrupted by more urgent undertakings.

That said, there are a trio of books I am planning to read that may be of interest to readers of this site:

  • Alinsky, Saul. Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals.
  • Carson, Clayborne ed. The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Pinker, Steven. The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature.

If anybody feels inclined to read and discuss one of them, I can make it a priority reading task for myself.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. I found The Blank Slate to be excellent, and really made me change the way I think about human nature.
