The Social Conquest of Earth
The Social Conquest of Earth by Edward O. Wilson (History/Biography)
A difficult subject written in an understandable manner, conveniently broken into small chapters so one may pick it up and put it down at will. Depressing: his analysis of war and violence as an essential part of human nature. -- Added by Konsulentin on 02/23/2015

What Went Wrong?
What Went Wrong? by Bernard Lewis (History/Biography)
While this tells us what has gone wrong in the dealings of the West with the Islamic world (and things are definitely wrong, years after this book was first published), I did miss more of an indication of what we might do now to turn the relationship around, which we very much need to do. -- Added by Konsulentin on 02/23/2015

In view of the many problems we are having with geographical areas which were long in the Islamic world it is very useful to read what the historical relationship has been and why they see us in the west so differently than we would like to have them see us. -- Added by Konsulentin on 02/23/2015
