Nathan "N.R." Gaddis Nicely done.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) How in the world did you manage to enter more than 100 books singlehandedly ... AND make them stick?

Also: Would there happen to be an online link to the bibliography in question anywhere? (That would make it easier to help monitoring this list for unwanted additions.)

Great one, in any event!


message 3: by Hadrian (new)

Hadrian Themis-Athena: I just added the first 100 books, then removed my votes for all of them, and then added the next 100. I'm not sure if that's how it's supposed to work, but it did! It probably also explains why some books have negative votes.

As far as I know, this is the only online database for RURD's bibliography. I could type up the whole thing later, though.

Thank you! I appreciate your thoughts and votes.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Ah -- that explains it! It had to have something to do with the negative votes ... I'm just surprised the books are still in the list. Typically, if you remove your vote, the book disappears as well (not necessarily at once, but eventually), unless somebody else has voted for it in the interim. So I guess the next thing will be to find other folks to vote for as many of the remaining books as possible to make sure they remain included! :)

Don't go typing up the whole thing if it doesn't already exist as an online reference elsewhere ... with 400 books, that sounds like a LOT of trouble!!


message 5: by Brian (new)

Brian As I am reading RUARD and come across referenced books that are not listed here, may I add them, Hadrian? (e.g. Jean's Way on p. 248 of Vol 1


message 6: by Hadrian (new)

Hadrian Please do!

Awesome - just wanted to be sure before I messed with this awesome list.


message 8: by GT (new)

GT What a great list! Thank You.


message 9: by Warwick (new)

Warwick Is there anyone that's read RURD that's also read Pinker's The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined? I'm just curious as to whether the arguments are opposed, or somehow complementary.
