    In regard to Rick Perlstein --> assuming you're talking about Nixonland

    Here's a good book about neoliberalism:

    Pretty beautiful book, if you can you should get the Constance Farrington translation.

    Kind of difficult to read in some parts, easy to get lost, but i would definitely still recommend. Makes you think a lot about 'decolonization' and how weirdo radlibs use it this day -- e.g. "decolonize design!" "decolonize the x industry"

    i think mokhtefi has a really interesting perspective! kind of presumes u already know the (very) basic history arc of the revolutionary 60s, non aligned movement, the panthers etc

    not really a history text per se just like one woman's account of her experiences, and the feelings she had at the time. thought it was worth reading!

  • The Open Society and its enemies by Karl Popper

    On Liberty by John Stuart Mill

    Theory of justice by Rawls

    The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith

    And my personal favourite:

    Why nations fail by James K Robinson and Daron Acemoglu

    Fanon is one of my favorite philosophers because he combines theory (prose) with a lot of poetic elements. It feels like a fictional lit. author writing treatises.

    Heavily recommend Black Skin, White Masks after reading this one if you enjoy him. They work really well in tandem.

    This thread is going to be (rightfully) filled with leftist literature, but if you ever want to delve deep into one of the strangest fascist's minds, Francis Parker Yockey's "Imperium" is a f***ing trip and a half.

    It really predicts how American conservatism has devolved into a crumbling, sputtering mess and why fascists are beginning to take a stronger and stronger hold onto our institutions.

    You should watch 'Battle of Algiers' if you haven't already
    Apparently the CIA and the BPP have used it to train their members

    !!!!!! I love that movie I actually own the Criterion copy as well. Wasn鈥檛 aware about that CIA part tho

    Insane how real it feels and all the practical (and clearly dangerous) effects for bombs and stuff. Coulda thought it was a documentary for a sec

    Still need to learn more about the entire run of that war tho and was interested more about Ben Bellas time as leader

    Discourse on Colonialism is similar in writing; AFAIK Cesaire is a poet
