Hope it's not too shocking :
In Feb, I'm going to be reading Fletcher Pratt's "A Short History of the Civil War: Ordeal by Fire" along with a few others as part of the 2nd Non-Fiction Group Group Read over on the Amazon discussion board. (all are welcome)
And right now I'm trying to finish up some reviews for some fine books and articles I've read recently. Plus finish an article by Thomas Gallant entitled: "Honor, Masculinity, and Ritual Knife Fighting in Nineteenth-Century Greece".
Okay, I've done my bit to promote community.
God's Crucible: Islam and the Making of Europe for me. Got interested while recently reading Don Quixote and thinking about just how Arabic it was in tone and format. So far, mixed reviews. Interesting subject, he feels compelled to do an Early Islam 101 for the first 100 pages, and has a few factual points that are highly suspect. Still, interesting and for the most part decently written.
