A Black Guy’s Guide to the Constitution
Elie Mystal - 2022-01-11
Рейтинг Goodreads
"Allow Me to Retort" by Elie Mystal is a thought-provoking book that challenges many Republican beliefs about the First and Second Amendments, death penalty, police violence against people of color, gerrymandering, voter suppression, and other crucial political topics. Mystal, a commentator and lawyer, offers an easily digestible argument primer that showcases his trademark humor, snark, and legal expertise. Regardless of your legal background, "Allow Me to Retort" will help you understand how the Fourteenth Amendment can make the white supremacist policies illegal again.

BTW, the best Silicon Valley novel ever imho was Microserfs. After you read the book, it programs you to think you're *in* the book. Amazing how complete the virtuality was.      источник

The best book on Microsoft was written by David Bank, and unfortunately almost no one read it because it came out the week of 9/11. But if you want to know what really happened it's authoritative imho.      источник
How the South Won the Civil War book cover
How the South Won the Civil War
Oligarchy, Democracy, and the Continuing Fight for the Soul of America
Heather Cox Richardson - 2020-04-01
Рейтинг Goodreads
This thought-provoking book challenges the notion that the North's victory in the Civil War brought about true democracy and equality. Instead, the defeated South's system moved westward and established a new birth of white male oligarchy, despite constitutional advances. The book traces the story of the American paradox and the competing claims of equality and subordination woven into the nation's fabric and identity. The author debunks the myth that the Civil War released the nation from the grip of oligarchy and reveals how the Old South thrived in the West.

Heather Cox Richardson's book, which I'm just starting, appears to be the history of America that they didn't teach us in school.      источник

Клара и Солнце
A novel
Kazuo Ishiguro - 2021-03-02
Рейтинг Goodreads
Клара совсем новая. С заразительным любопытством из-за широкого окна витрины она впитывает в себя окружающий мир — случайных прохожих, проезжающие машины и, конечно, живительное Солнце. Клара хочет узнать и запомнить как можно больше — так она сможет стать лучшей Искусственной Подругой своему будущему подростку От того, кто выберет Клару, будет зависеть ее судьба. Чистый, отчасти наивный взгляд на реальность, лишь слегка отличающуюся от нашей собственной, — вот, что дарит новый роман Кадзуо Исигуро. Каково это — любить? И можно ли быть человеком, если ты не совсем человек? История, рассказанная с обескураживающей искренностью, заставит вас по-новому ответить на эти вопросы. Кадзуо Исигуро — лауреат Нобелевской и Букеровской премий; автор, чьи произведения продаются миллионными тиражами. Его новый роман «Клара и Солнце» — повествование на грани фантастики, тонкая спекулятивная реальность. Но, несмотря на фантастический флер, это история о семье, преданности, дружбе и человечности. Каково это — любить? И можно ли быть человеком, если ты не совсем человек?

Народная история США book cover
Народная история США
Howard Zinn - 1995-01-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1980)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Известный американский историк Говард Зинн дает свой, во многом отличный от большинства традиционных представлений, взгляд на важнейшие события истории США с колониальных времен до начала XXI в. Автор создал необычайно яркую, живую, насыщенную интереснейшими фактами историю жизни и борьбы за выживание и достоинство ущемленных социальных групп. Подлинными героями "Народной истории США" Г.Зинна оказались миллионы простых американцев. Опубликованная в 1980 г. и неоднократно переиздававшаяся, эта книга впервые переведена на русский язык, и, безусловно, привлечет внимание не только профессиональных историков, социологов и политологов, но и всех, кто интересуется историей Соединенных Штатов.

I started reading People's History of America and it was just what I was looking for. After this, I want to read the equivalent book about the Jews in Europe. I have very little idea what that was about other than it was rough and didn't end well. ;-)      источник

When I was a grad student, Knuth's book on algorithms was our handbook. His "boundary tag method" was the design I used for Frontier's object database.      источник
