But this year I am returning to reading books, and with the exception of David Halberstam's new masterpiece on the Korean War, they are all books I have read before. Here is my winter reading list.
- Politics of Rich and Poor- Kevin Phillips
- The Rise and Fall of Great Powers- Paul Kennedy
- The Fall of the Roman Empire- Michael Grant
- The Path to Power, Means of Ascent and Master of the Senate- Robert Caro.
The first three books on the list all have analytical and unique looks at phenom that have been heavily written about but not with the rich detail of the named authors. The last line- the trilogy masterpiece by Robert Caro is the most complete, best written societal and political biographies of our time.
