Do voters act in a rational fashion when they cast their ballots? Are they self interested or ideologically driven? Decades of research is strung together in a coherent and compelling story. Well worded and read. Reccomended to anyone interested in politics.

Good selection of the key texts of Greek philosophy. Well recited by the actors and explained by the author. The texts speak for themselves, to some extent, but perhaps a bit more contextual information and more explanation would not have been amiss.

Murray goes to the heart of what's probably the defining set of issues of our time. Each chapter is dedicated to one of the key topics: gender, race, etc. He recounts how the moral force each of these issues carry with it has been appropriated and distorted by actors who have decided the purpose of political action is to sow discord rather than devise a way for all differences to exist togethet in as much harmony as can be achieved. Everyone speaking on these issues is going to have to be able to deal with the arguments he puts forward. Remarkable.

Harari is a safe bet. Books about projecting current trends into the future are always be a bit sketchy. This one deals persuasively with some of the more fundamental questions facing humanity as a species. Well worth giving it a try.

The market remains a powerful tool to analyse cultural currents within a society. This book does a stellar job at using such tool to make sense of where Chinese society is going.
