message 1: by Jerome (new)

Jerome The Constitution and the Declaration? Huh?

And David Ray Griffin, ugh, please.


message 2: by September (new)

September Agreed, Jerome. Why is a solid third of this list books supporting Christianity and declaring the evils of jihadist Islam. Hardly disturbing truths--hardly truths at all! Were this list a book, it would get 1 star, for incongruity and bias. (Doesn't even include "Blowback"!)


Loveliest Evaris The Dirty Truth by T.J. Anderson is listed here twice.


message 4: by Linda (new)

Linda Lots of tantalizing conspiracy theory here in place of history. And quite a bit of fiction.
