Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Took a break from my other reading to enjoy Rise of the Federation: A Choice of Futures by Christopher. Really liking it so far!

From there, it's back to The History of White People by Nell Irvin Painter. It's a fascinating look at the history of the concept of whiteness, of who's "white" and who "isn't," and how that list has changed over the centuries.

Then, I'm going to finish re-reading Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy by Christopher Hayes. A more brilliant analysis of the sickness of modern American culture, I have not seen.

After that, it's back to The Honourable Schoolboy by John le Carré , which I have to admit I'm having some trouble getting through. It's not as engaging as The Spy Who Came in From the Cold or Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy so far. But by gosh, I will get through this and make my way through the conclusion to the Karla trilogy, Smiley's People.

From there, I'm not sure whether to read Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield by Jeremy Scahill or Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Paulo Freire.
