Summer Reading [BUMPED]

I'm off for ten weeks.

I don't go back for the fall semester until August 29th. My oldest son just now said, "That's pretty crazy!"

That is, lol.

I'll be doing a lot of reading, enjoying some beer and baseball, and perhaps taking a couple of smallish trips (maybe Las Vegas, or at least Harrah's Rincon resort, which is fabulous).

In any case, here's some reading material for folks, via Amazon.

See, Wayne Batchis, The Right's First Amendment: The Politics of Free Speech & the Return of Conservative Libertarianism.

And Judy Wajcman, Pressed for Time: The Acceleration of Life in Digital Capitalism.

More, from Robert Lieber, Retreat and its Consequences: American Foreign Policy and the Problem of World Order.

Newt and Callista Gingrich, Rediscovering God in America: Reflections on the Role of Faith in Our Nation's History and Future.

Know your Marxist enemies, with Danny Katch, Socialism . . . Seriously: A Brief Guide to Human Liberation.

David Boaz, The Libertarian Mind: A Manifesto for Freedom.

I'm currently reading, Fools, Frauds and Firebrands: Thinkers of the New Left.

BONUS: Annette Gordon-Reed and Peter S. Onuf, "Most Blessed of the Patriarchs": Thomas Jefferson and the Empire of the Imagination.
