    In Goliath, New York Times best-selling author Max Blumenthal takes us on a journey through the badlands and high roads of Israel-Palestine, painting a startling portrait of Israeli society under the siege of increasingly authoritarian politics as the occupation of the Palestinians deepens. Beginning with the national elections carried out during Israel's war on Gaza in 2008/9, which brought into power the country's most right-wing government to date, Blumenthal tells the story of Israel in the wake of the collapse of the Oslo peace process.

    Listened to it after I heard an interview with the author on democracy now. I could not stop listing or sleep until I finished it. It makes you want to cry. A must read for all peace lovers.

    This book is Moore's most personal to date - and will be irresistible to fans and foes alike. A sort of anti-memoir, Moore breaks the autobiographical mode while he hilariously presents 20 far-ranging, irreverant vignettes from his own life. This book is a wild, revealing, take-no-prisoners ride through the early life of Michael Moore. Alternately funny, eye-opening, and moving, this is a book Michael Moore has been writing - and living - for a very long time.

    I could not stop listening to this audio book. If you read his previous work you will love this one. If you are new to Michael: Open you heart to an emotional journey, and be ready to be captivated from the first page.

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Louis says: "Loved it and learned alot."

    Overall

    This is an amazing book. This book is better then the pillars of the earth. It gives early 20th century a practical and a human face. WARNING: If you are an ultra conservative, if you do no like history or facts, or if you are a religious fanatic: This book may not be for you. For the other 90% of the people you will love it. I could not stop listening to this book.

  • The Future of Freedom: Illiberal Democracy at Home and Abroad

    American democracy is, in many people's minds, the model for the rest of the world. Fareed Zakaria points out that the American form of democracy is one of the least democratic in use today. Members of the Supreme Court and the Federal Reserve, institutions that fundamentally shape our lives, are appointed, not elected. The Bill of Rights enumerates a set of privileges to which citizens are entitled, no matter what the majority says. By restricting our democracy, we enhance our freedom.

    G Barth says: "Superb Survey of Modern Democratic Issues"
    "One sided history views."
    Overall

    To the author the USA has a perfect economical and geopolitical system and sets the standard to witch other mainly third words countries should strive. The problem with this view is the lack of space to any improvement and any embitterment of capitalism. Furthermore the author sees the problem as a technical problem, and that all third world countries should do is follow a set of rules or paths to achieve liberty and freedom.
    PROBLEM: Were is the economic freedom?? How can any country achieve any level of freedom with no equal economic rights? The author also conveniently ignores the atrocities committed by the west and their repeated roll in crushing any attempts of real democracy (liberty and economic) in the third world..

    When scholars write the history of the world 20 years from now, and they come to the chapter "Y2K to March 2004", what will they say was the most crucial development? The attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11 and the Iraq war? Or the convergence of technology and events that allowed India, China, and so many other countries to become part of the global supply chain for services and manufacturing?
