Found at NPR - The Democracy Library

As part of the Public Radio Collaboration Whose Democracy Is It?, Talk of the Nation has assembled a "library of democracy," compiled from suggestions from both guests and listeners. Browse our reading list:

It's a fairly long list but some interesting choices, quite a bit of Marx, some Chomsky, lots of angry choices. My favorite was Hannah Humphrey who has a couple of different entries on the list I'm betting she isn't a real big fan of the American System:

Nickel and Dimed: On Not Getting by in America, by Barbara Ehrenreich; What is To Be Done? by V.I. Lenin; Strategy and Tactics by Leon Trotsky
-- suggested by Hannah Humphrey

The Story of American Freedom, by Eric Foner; Class, Race, and the Civil Rights Movement, by Jack Bloom; Grassroots Socialism: Radical Movements in the Southwest 1895-1943, by James R. Green; European Social Democracy and American Imperialism, by Leo Panitch
-- suggested by Hannah Humphrey
