Books/chapters include "Machiavelli's The Prince" [1532]; "Discourse On The Method" [1637] by René Descartes; "Leviathan" [1651] by Thomas Hobbes; "Discourse On The Origin and Foundations of Inequality Among Men" [1755] by Jean-Jacques Rousseau; "The Commu-nist Manifesto" [1848] by Karl Marx & Friedrich Engels; "Utilitarianism" [1861 essays] by John Stuart Mill; "The Descent of Man" [1871] by Charles Darwin; "Beyond Good and Evil" [1886] by Friedrich Nietzsche; "The State and Revolution" [1917] by Vladimir Lenin; "The Pivot of Civilization" [1922] by Margaret Sanger; "Mein Kampf (My Battle)" [1925-26] by Adolf Hitler; "The Future of An Illusion" [1927] by Sigmund Freud; "Coming of Age In Samoa" [1928] by Margaret Mead; "Sexual Behavior In The Human Male" [1948] by Alfred Kinsey; and "The Feminine Mystique" [1963] by Betty Friedan

Politically Incorrect Guide to Western Civilization book by Anthony Esolen  "The Politically Incorrect Guide To Western Civilization" [2008]
by Anthony Esolen

Wide-ranging coverage of Western history since the Greeks & Romans that several Amazon reviewers praise highly; HOWEVER: author is biased against Chinese & Arabic & other cul-tures, against liberal and multicultural concepts per se, and for Catholic/Christian history as the source of our entire civilization. (Book probably interesting, but the premise is invalid.)

"Science starts to get interesting when things don’t make sense."

Amazon reviewers point out that 'failing to prove negatives does not constitute scientific mystery', yet the book appears to be an interesting read.
