5. This is way off topic, but I enjoyed the heck out of it
Da Vinci Code. Lots of history, fast read, and good fun.

7. Anything by Kurt Vonnegut,
but his most recent, "A Man Without A Country," is remarkable.

8. My favorite book about all this mess...
still is Chalmers Johnson's "The Sorrows of Empire". Lately I've been stuck in the 80's with Reagan...Iran/Contra and the BCCI...and just got Gary Webb's "Dark Alliance", and "A Full Service Bank"...if you're into CIA stuff they've compiled a reading list at this site...

My wife and I actually went out and bought the French Cheese mentioned (double wrapped and had to be opened on the porch).

23. The Clash of Civilizations, by Samuel Huntington.
The book is around ten years old, but it's still a very good book on the post-Cold War world. Huntington chastises the western universalism (treating western values such as democracy, religious pluralism, and freedom of expression as universal human values) That leads to the "spreading freedom and democracy" wild goose chase. He beleives that the West is entering it's "universal state" phase and that most of the conflicts and problems western countries will participate in will be with countries or populations of other civilizations.
