July book club selection

Somewhat belatedly, I have posted my review of Jared Diamond’s Collapse. I hope others will put up their thoughts, as well.

For July, I think we should choose something relatively light and accessible, in the hope of getting more than two or three people to read it. Suggestions?

Author: Milan

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. You must add this book to your list:
    Operation Short Stop 2, this book really lets you inside what some off the big brass can pull off with the nod off their heads. It kept me going until I was almost done with it. It should be made into a movie.

  2. What about some Ignatieff?

    Ignatieff, Michael. The Warrior’s Honour: Ethnic War And the Modern Consciousness.

  3. Iggy is certainly a relevant figure right now, I would vote to reading something by him.

    I’m sorry my review of Collapse is so late – I didn’t realize till very late that it had actually been selected. Some preliminary related thoughts are here – http://northernsong.wordpress.com/2009/06/23/values-and-religions/ – but they are not so much about the book as other things the book got me thinking about.
