I'll read just about anything that might be interesting and love to learn about new things.

The Sorrows of Empire: Militarism, Secrecy, and the End of the Republic (The American Empire Project)

The Sorrows of Empire: Militarism, Secrecy, and the End of the Republic (The American Empire Project) - Chalmers Johnson, Shara Kay The book is a little dated because it was written in 2004. It would be very interesting to see an updated version incorporating the events of the second Bush term and the first 6 years under Obama. All in all I thought the topic was interesting and the analysis seemed solid. It provides a clear and insightful look at the problems we face because of our current refusal to engage in pragmatic and realistic foreign policy.
