I came across this a while back. It is a list of "Ten Essential Homeland Security Books." Regardless of where you may stand politically or about the military operations in Iraq, you probably can learn a bit more by reading these books. The author, Christopher Bellavita, writing for the Homeland Security Affairs journal, gives a short review of each book to help us get a sense of what each book is about. For those who may be wondering, I have read two books on the list: The 9/11 Commission Report (in graphic novel form) and Imperial Hubris.I have also read the three basic documents at the end of the list, but I may want to look at them again. I think a lot of people should be reading those documents again.

A hat tip to the Resource Shelf.

Don Quijote de la Mancha
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

The Comparative Literature Studies journal, vol. 43 issue 4 (2206) is a special edition on "Don Quixote and 400 Years of World Literature." The 400 year anniversary of the great Spanish novel was last year, and I wrote a couple posts related to the celebration over at my professional blog here and here. Unfortunately, back then I had hoped that I would be able to read the great novel again, but life trumped that idea for now. We do have copies at my library of the edition depicted here, which is the one put out by the Real Academia Espanola for the anniversary. So, who knows, I may try again at some point in the future to revisit the novel.
