Justin Felgar asked:
I am currently taking a class on Politics of Industrialize Societies. The class, however, focuses on European political structure. We have a book critique due at the end of the term, and I am deciding on whether to read Tinker, Tailor, or a political analysis on the IRA. I have always wanted to read Tinker, Tailor, but I'm wondering how it will mesh with the class material. Thoughts?
Mehmet Serdar Thinker, Tailor would not be the correct material, i guess. I would rather recommend Ken Follet's Century Triology as it is perfect tour de france of European politics of 20th century.
Paul I'm not an authority, but critiquing a book of fiction for a class such as you describe normally results in a failing grade. Of course I don't know what guidance your professor provided, but I would stick with non-fiction books for your assignment.
