Reading List

From the archives: my favorite books.
For what it’s worth, what I’m reading right now: John Keegan, The First World War (more on this later; I can’t put it down); Michael Kelly, Things Worth Fighting For; and a few others I started and have made slow progress on. I was very close to finishing John Fund’s Stealing Elections and Stephen Hayes’ The Connection before the election, but haven’t made much headway since then. I also recently finished PJ O’Rourke’s new book Peace Kills: America’s Fun New Imperialism, which was OK but I’d already read the best stuff in article form.
