Seven
years after the fall of the Wall in 1989, Funder travels to the former
East Germany to interview both the victims and the victimizers of the
world’s once most notorious police states. Originally published abroad
in 2003 and now seeing its first U.S. publication, the personal stories
she relates of courage, heartbreak, and the sometime absurdities of life
in GDR are still powerful and compelling.Dale

Charles Mann has done it again. Like his previous book, 1491, Mann synthesizes current historical scholarship and gives us a radically new and fascinating interpretation of the enormous, world-wide changes brought about with the European discovery of the New World, known as the Columbian Exchange.

Sebastian
Junger spent over a year with a platoon in the Korengal Valley in
Afghanistan to document what the experience of war feels like for
today’s front-line soldiers. This book and the documentary film Restrepo
he made with Tim Hetherington are the result. Junger’s book is both
powerful and profound and filled with insights as to how men respond to
and are affected by combat.Dale
