Venona : Decoding Soviet Espionage in America - book cover picture

This is a scholarly history without the flash, trash, hype, and jive of journalism. The authors had access to the decrypt of Soviet messages from the 1941-1945 period as well as the Soviet espionage archives and the FBI archives. They explain in detail how they obtained their information and then described the activities of Soviet agents. At the end is a list of about 450 people who were Soviet agents. For those of you who are not interested in the historic details, the bottom line is that everyone who was publicly accused of being a Soviet agent was one. Senator McCarthy was right and the professors and journalists were wrong.

I also recommend The Venona Secrets : Exposing America's Cold War Traitors by Herb Romerstein if you want more detailed information from an experienced espionage agent of the time. This other book, available here on Amazon, will tell you many more interesting things.

Brilliant, a must read


Book title: Deterring Democracy
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Deterring Democracy - book cover picture

It is refreshing to read a book that is prepared to challenge the establishment and some of the vile myths which are proclaimed as facts. As usual Chomsky relies on undisputable facts which are conspicuously absent from the main line media. It is wonderful that someone as eloquent as Chomsky is willing to stand up to the established order (and be vilified for his pains). It is sad that what he writes is true. This book will provide a rude awakening for many, like me, who have relied for most of their life on standardmedia sources which tend to tow the official line in the same way as Pravda did in the Soviet Union.Well worth reading.

What's So Great About America - book cover picture

I thought the title was being sarcastic and I was glad that I was wrong!I enjoyed this refreshing point of view from a grateful and intelligent immigrant. The author is a great writer and you will learn different perspectives of how America is viewed (European, Islamic, etc.). Give it a chance because I had no idea why there were such idoits that can't see how much good America does and why.The author provides a objective view of the problems perceived by non-Americans and Americans of left/right politics and gives America a good report card.The advice and information given is worthy of your time and I recommend this book.

All you need in a little book!

Electronics Pocket Reference - book cover picture

I'm an Electrical Engineer working for a private R&D company. This handy book has all the major things you need to know. It shows electrical concepts, formulas, tables, etc. This book would go really well for Electronics Technicians and Electronic Engineers as well. I've been out of school only for 3 years, but I sure did forget a lot of the theory that was thought in school. Instead of rummaging through my school books, I can open up this pocket reference and find out how to calculate "this" and how to do "that."Highly recommended!

AN AMAZING REQUIEM FOR HENRY ROTH


Book title: Requiem for Harlem: Mercy of a Rude Stream (Roth, Henry//Mercy of a Rude Stream)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Requiem for Harlem: Mercy of a Rude Stream (Roth, Henry//Mercy of a Rude Stream) - book cover picture

There is an extraordinary pain and energy to REQUIEM FOR HARLEM which makes you remember it long after you have finished it. It also has the feel of a thriller -- fast, daring, sexual, morally challenging, yet when you are confronted at the end with the unspeakable crimes, not so much of Ira but of his father, you begin to understand the psychic pain that belonged both to Roth and his alter-ego, Ira Stigman. One only wishes that Roth had been younger and could have written more fiction on this level, but there is a sad wisdom to be gleaned that could only come of an author nearing the end. For anyone who thinks that contemporary American literature lacks big or philosophically probing themes, I urge them not only to read REQUIEM FOR HARLEM but also the entire quartet of MERCY OF A RUDE STREAM. Roth has yet to be rediscovered for his final masterpieces, but the time for these books will come, as surely as it did for CALL IT SLEEP.

Enemy Lines I: Rebel Dream (Star Wars: The New Jedi Order, Book 11) - book cover picture

This adventure concerns Luke and Leia, primarily, as another galactic villian arrives to begin his take-over at Courisant. And, thus, another great space opera begins and grips us just as tightly as other great sci-fi works of old and new: "Stranger in a Strange Land", "Puppet Masters", "Foundation", "2001", "2010", "Rendezvous with Rama", "Ringworld", all the "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" books, as well as books as new to the genre as "Advent of the Corps" and others.

The God Particle : If the Universe Is the Answer, What Is the Question? - book cover picture

If there is anyone who is interested in Philosophy and Physics this is a MUST read. It is technical enough to keep the attention of both the in-the-know physicist to those merely curious about modern physics. It is also creative and thought provoking for any well read philosopher. Mr. Lederman's sense of humor is delightful and refreshing and takes the edge off the serious matter discussed in the book. Much of universe still lays hidden and remains a mystery despite our apparent advancement in the knowledge base of our universe. This book will both shock and mesmerize the reader. It is an awe inspiring unveiling of the mysteries plaguing modern science. Lederman has created a marvelous starting point for any one studying Philosophy of Science in modern context. Highly, highly recommended.

Tom Robbins has the amazing ability to put into words concepts and realities within our world that go often wordless or coherently described. His comparisons are absolutely fun, free, and totally, WACKED! What a great trip into the realm of feminine sexuality as well. I've had a few girlfriends read this book - and all ask where the heck i found this guy cause he's right on. A fun, fast, crazy adventure of a book that will give you insight into much of yourself and our wacky planet.

Murder Makes Waves (Southern Sisters Mysteries (Paperback)) - book cover picture

I just discovered these witty little gems featuring sister's Patricia Anne Hollowell--"Mouse" and Mary Alice (She has way too many last names)--"Sister".
This one, for some reason, stood out. It's beautifully written, like all Anne George's books. And, trust me, it's hard to make a mystery novel lyrical and beautiful. But George pulls it off.
Sister and Mouse go on a semivacation to Sister's condo on the beach, and wouldn't ya know it, they find a dead body. Two, actually. They see a turtle as big as a table lay her eggs, and with Sister's and Mouse's southern charm and wit, you'll want to shoo away the world, go to bed, pull the covers to your chin against the winter cold and bury your nose in this little gem with pages and not come back out until it's over.
