📘Book Recommendations📒

  • The Gates of Europe: A History of Ukraine by Serhii Plokhy (Amazon Link). An accessible and comprehensive history of Ukraine. The book’s sections include good maps of the borders in each time period.
  • Strongmen: Mussolini to the Present by Ruth Ben-Ghiat (Amazon Link). An insightful, researched, and very well-written book. Ruth Ben-Ghiat outlines all the tricks in the authoritarian’s “playbook,” with good coverage of Putin. You can also find the author on twitter.
  • Speaking of Twitter, this is a good list of sources to follow on Twitter for news (from Morning Brew). Unfortunately, it sounds like Twitter’s filters are too often closing the accounts of the wrong people.
  • The Guns of August by Barbara W. Tuchman (Amazon Link). Tuchman’s fantastic book on how the world stumbled into WWI is an important lesson in misunderstanding and miscalculations.
