Right-Wing Populism in America: Too Close for Comfort (Critical Perspectives) by Chip Berlet
Right-Wing Populism in America: Too Close for Comfort (Critical Perspectives)

Julia PDX, December 7, 2012

This is a well-researched and engaging volume about the different currents and influence of the racist Right in America. A dark but important read!

Cities of Salt by Abdelrahman Munif
Cities of Salt

Julia PDX, April 3, 2012

I was assigned this book in a college course almost a decade ago. Rediscovering it in 2012 was a pleasure. Muniif's narrative is engrossing and illuminates the interactions between people with varying levels of privilege and power.

A Different Mirror: A History of Multicultural America by Ronald Takaki
A Different Mirror: A History of Multicultural America

Julia PDX, April 2, 2012

Takaki's book was well researched and vividly written. It traces the history of the United States from below, like Zinn's "People's History," and through the eyes of immigrants and marginalized communities. An important work for understanding how we got to where we are today.

Strange Defeat: A Statement of Evidence Written in 1940 by Marc Bloch
Strange Defeat: A Statement of Evidence Written in 1940

Julia PDX, January 21, 2012

Marc Bloch, a French historian from a Jewish family and veteran of WWI and WWII, joined the French Resistance during the occupation. In "Strange Defeat," written as Bloch was fighting in the French Resistance, he provides rich detail about the collapse of the French military from a first-hand perspective. This brilliant and heartbreaking work was published after Bloch was executed for his activity.

A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire #5) by George R. R. Martin
A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire #5)

Julia PDX, September 1, 2011

George R. R. Martin continues to captivate with his most recent addition to the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series with "A Dance with Dragons." With an intricately woven plot and complex characters, Martin's story ranks up there with the best fantasy tales ever told. I can't wait for the next book.
