"What We Say Goes: Conversations on U.S. Power in a Changing World" by Noam Chomsky."Faces of the Enemy: Reflections on the Hostile Imagination" by Sam Keen"What we say..." is an account of events leading up to the philosophy behind the Taliban and Al Queida.I was pretty unfamiliar with the situations in Panama and the surrounding areas until then.I am not sure I agree with all the data and the opinion following it but it is always nice to know what they opposition thinks in order to appease desires, isolate perspectives, and try to heal sore spots.I just read "Faces of the Enemy: Reflections on the Hostile Imagination" by Sam KeenThe version I got was illustrated and had pictoral accounts from across history and the globe.It had interesting syllioquis in which enemies are depicted to a population inside the status quo and how it festers with time.Both good reads.

I am reading, "Jump Cut" by Max Allan Collins. It is about a team of FBI profilers coming to Lawrence, KS to investigate a series of fatal stabbings among the town's homeless population.
