Goodreads Rating
This groundbreaking book challenges our assumptions about social evolution and human history. The authors delve into the origins of farming, property, cities, democracy, slavery, and civilization itself, revealing unexpected and hopeful possibilities. Through research in archaeology and anthropology, they argue that human history is less set in stone than we tend to assume, and offer new ways of imagining freedom and organizing society. With formidable intellectual range and a faith in the power of direct action, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in rethinking the course of human history.

Unveiled: How Western Liberals Empower Radical Islam is a memoir by Canadian human rights activist Yasmine Mohammed. With one foot in the Western world and another in the fundamentalist Islamic household she grew up in, Yasmine provides a unique perspective on Islam and its role in terrorism. Her goal is to unveil the truth about hot-button issues such as FGM, the hijab, and ISIS, while guiding readers through media narratives, political correctness, and outright lies. Part Infidel, part The Handmaid's Tale, this memoir gives readers a rare glimpse into a world few Westerners know.
