A longtime listener and participant here on the PEL blog wrote in to suggest that we share our current reading list. Seemed like a good idea, so here is mine.
I preface by saying that I typically have multiple texts to hand in different modalities (Kindle, Audible, actual book) on different topics and read/listen according to my mood and situation.
And so here’s the list of books I’ve recently read, am reading, or plan to begin soon:
- Blood and Soil: A World History of Genocide from Sparta to Darfur – Ben Kiernan
- The Authoritarian Personality – Theodor Adorno
- The Good Lord Bird: A Novel – James McBride
- May You Live in Interesting Times – Laraine Newman
- Silencing the Past: Power and the Production of History – Michel-Rolph Trouillot
- Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don’t Know – Malcolm Gladwell
