Weapons and Hope, Freeman Dyson; describes and proposes compromise solutions to the full spectrum of politics and controversy surrounding strategic weapons development, but could also apply to any other large defense projects.

Skunk Works, Ben Rich & Leo Janos; history of the legendary Lockheed Martin division responsible for the U-2 and SR-71 spyplanes among other aircaft. useful for gaining at least some understanding of how a large, engineering-focused defense corporation actually works (learn before you crticize). fascinating thriller if you're really into aviation like me...

The Man Who Was Thursday, G.K. Chesterton

World Peace Through World Law, Grenville Clark

Industrial Society And Its Future, Theodore Kaczynski (more of his works)

Nonfiction

A Concise History of Mathematics by Dirk Jan Struik - the better of many math history books.

Fermat's Enigma: The Epic Quest to Solve the World's Greatest Mathematical Problem by Simon Singh - one of the most entertaining books on number theory ever.

Fiction

Shogun by James Clavell - I have read this over and over so many times it's becoming ridiculous. All the other books in this series aren't bad, but Shogun is the one to get.

Fyodor Dostoevsky - The Brothers Karamazov; what isn't in this book? An examination of God, religious faith, morality, human existence, and the meaning of life by one of the world's greatest authors, all wrapped up in the story of three brothers and the murder of their father. The chapter entitled "The Grand Inquisitor" alone is worth the cover price. There's quite a few translations out there...I'm reading the McDuff translation, and I hear the Pehear/Volokhonsky version is very good, too.

The Prince - Nicolo Machiavelli - the primer on bare knuckles politics

The Fountainhead - Ayn Rand - Rand sticks it up the ass of the psuedo-intellectual socialist effete snobs that infest our society and pollute this board - do yourselves a favor , shut off your computer and set aside a weekend to read this. might just change your outlook on things.

The Gulag Archipelago: 1918-1956 - Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn - tough read. if you stick with it you will mosy definatly snap you out of your "socialist workers' paradise"delusions

The Bible - God - the TRUTH.

The Koran (or Qu'ran or Queer'an or howeverthefuck you choose to spell it) - Muhammed - a bastardized and and twisted version of the TRUTH as set forth in the Bible , written by a psychopathic camel humper with delusions of granduer.
I didn't say that I didn't say it. I said that I didn't say that I said it. I want to make that very clear.

The Bible never says Jesus is the son of God. Much of the New Testament and the whole of modern Christian thought were written by an ambiguously orthodox Jew who used to beat the mess out of Christians for a living until he had a vision on a road years after Jesus died.
