The Conservative Mind by Russell Kirk. A very challenging, scholarly work. I think I need to read and reread some prerequisite books before really delving into it.


Highly recommended.

Frighteningly, it actually brings back a clear memory to me from my very-distant past.

Baird - how was this? I saw it the other day and was thinking about buying it.

I am currently reading Peter the Great by Massie. Anyone interested in Russian history should check out his books. They are great
zblang,

I'm tempted to read John Adams. For a historian, McCullough's books are very readable, and although his subject matter has already obviously occured, his books actually build a type of suspense. I loved 1776.

I'm going to take your recommendation.
The Kite Runner was a great book.

Much better than the one I've got my nose in: Constitutional Law Of Canada, 8th Edition. I mean, talk about dry! The plot's going nowhere, this "jurisdiction" character is all over the map, and frankly, the whole "based on a true story" hook is not nearly enough to keep one interested.
I am about a half through it. It is kinda slow moving but not bad.
