    Hahahaha, no, doing a paper on the relative importance of political and spiritual motivations in the animosity between Jews and Blacks in America.

    You may want to check out Ed Koch's Letters on antisemitism - was published a few years ago. One-sided, but maybe helpful for your paper...

    Plowing through The Power Broker. A couple of hundred pages in and it's already one of the best books on politics I've ever read.


    Did you finish Power Broker? How did you enjoy?

    No, not yet halfway through. I try to read a handful of pages every night but it's difficult with school and work. I'll finish it during Christmas break. It is really outstanding. Absolutely gripping.

    I read Power Broker years ago, it still stands out as one of my all time favorites, and has always made me tempted to read the LBJ bio's by Caro.

    I find it so difficult to find books that are as captivating, well written, and thorough as the Power Broker. If you have any please pass along...

    In a similar vain I'd suggest reading William Manchester's The Last Lion - volume 1 is excellent but volume 2 is amazing. Ignore the criticism - its unwarranted.

    I have two of three of the LBJ books sitting on my bookshelf. I hope to read them soon. I know exactly what you're talking about re: The Power Broker. It's very hard to find history or biography written this well. Caro is an absolute genius!

    I think I am giving up on Havana Nocturne for a while... really disappointing as three of the last four books I've read I gave up on.

    Picked up Caviar by Inga Saffron at the bookstore last night. Pretty interesting stuff.

    Gordon Wood is one of the best historians of Early Amurka. Let me know how Greatest Show is I have heard mixed reviews.
