I've been reading The World in 2050: Four forces shaping civilization's northern future by Lawrence C. Smith.  It's a rather interesting book about how climate change is changing the Arctic, the difficulties, the new opportunities, and the role indigenous populations will play in this new world.

Just finished



Highly recommended. The CIA in the 50s and 60s was even crazier than I had thought, and that's impressive.

I haven't read this book, but Naomi Klein's "Shock Doctrine" does a really good job of describing the disgusting experiments done by the CIA on unsuspecting subjects.

I'm reading Tony Judt's Postwar. It's okay so far, I hope it gets better. The first few chapters just seem to be endless lists of numbers and statistics. His actual analysis is interesting, but reading page after page listing the numbers of refugees from each European state is kind of exhausting.

I've read it as well as a couple of other books by Judt.  I have read a lot of european history and I think he is a little biased on certain things.

Right now I'm reading "Globalization and its enemies" by Daniel Cohen

Thomas Piketty's "Capital in the 21st century".  Great book so far.
