76 SaltLakeGritty The other commenters seems to think that there's nothing of interest because it's only anti-american and pro-islam books. A lot of them are modern military history books though. I don't know what's particularly anti-american or pro-islam about these: * Oxford History of Modern War by Charles Townsend * Obama’s Wars by Bob Woodward * Necessary Illusions: Thought Control in Democratic Societies by Noam Chomsky * Handbook of International Law by Anthony Aust * The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly Hall * Unfinished Business, U.S. Overseas Military Presence in the 21st Century by Michael O’Hanlon

5 Clear_Runway we can get his bookshelf, but they won't publish a picture. figures.
7 skeeter1234 I really think people should be sceptical of this. You are essentially being told something here with zero evidence to back it up. All you are doing is taking something on faith. Interesting that most of these books are critical of American foreign policy. On the one hand that is to be expected, on the other hand that is exactly what the reading list would look like if it was just made up propaganda.
