The author's aim is to correct the misconception that fascism - a poorly defined and poorly understood term anyway, usually thrown about by anyone wishing to vilify and discredit something or someone they don't like - is a right-wing ideology, or tha ...more

Two Years Before the Mast by Richard Henry Dana Jr.
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book is, I suppose, something of a family favorite. It was a favorite of my father's and became one of mine as well. R. H. Dana was a student at Harvard in the 1830s who, following an illness which compromised his eyesight and forced an extended ...more

I ran across this in the public library while browsing for something else. Interesting perspective on Zionism. (It's a graphic novel, FYI, which seems to be about the only "reading" my relentlessly survival-fixated existence will afford currently, as ...more

This is one of those seasonal books for me—late summer and aut

That Hideous Strength by C.S. Lewis
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is a very relevant book for our times. It's also C.S. Lewis. Those two factors alone make it a more-or-less mandatory read – and one that is virtually guaranteed to be above average, at least. I do have to say, however, that I did not find it ne ...more
