Interesting books I've come across.

I thought I'd make a list of books that I would recommend to users of this site (or anyone with similar interests):

1. The Student Resistance Handbook- Cevin Soling
Although quite short it contains a lot of interesting strategies for making teachers lives as miserable as they make ours Mwahaha , I would definitely recommend picking up a copy.

2.Rules For Radicals- Saul Alinsky
Written by Saul Alinsky and published in 1971 this book details how to use the have-nots( the oppressed/disadvantaged) and the have-a-little-want-mores( the best way to describe this would be the "middle class")against the haves(the status quo).

3.The Prince- Nicolo Machiavelli
An incredibly controversial book written by Nicolo Machiavelli in order to gain the favour of Lorenzo de Medici, the best way to describe it is the antithesis of rules for radicals, it is a way for the haves to maintain control over the have-nots, I would suggest reading it, but the less politically motivated May find it somewhat boring ( I would like so stress that I'm not criticising anybody for being bored by it, trust me I nearly died of boredom when I first read it).

4. The Art Of War- Sun Tzu
Written by Sun Tzu, I don't really think there is any reason for me to give a synopsis of this as pretty much everyone has heard of it/read it, if not I would suggest reading it.

if anybody can think of any other interesting books similar to these I would be very grateful.Pirate2

I have an interesting book called "Resistance to Tyranny: A Primer". Didn't read it all but it's basically a guidebook on civil disobedience and preparing for oppressive government and all that stuff. Not that I expect such a future(unless by my own hands) but it has some interesting stuff in there that may come of use during emergencies.

I suggest people here read Flight by Sherman Alexie. It's a pretty good rebellion novel for teens, plus time travel.

More longer and confusing but still worth a peak is Rule of the Bone by Russell Banks. It's very long, and somewhat incoherent, but it kicks ass.
