Not bad. I have a short attention span, so this was a pretty quick read, but there were points where I was like "what the hell just happened?". I don't know what to say about the ending - I felt a little unfulfilled with it. It had a lot of humorous points, but I never found myself LOL-ing on the subway.
Not as good as The Devil Wears Prada but I still enjoyed it
Perhaps the single best book out there on the theory of American foreign policy. Mead constructs an outline of US strategic culture built around principles of American exceptionalism, historical isolationism, and strong patriotism. Distinguishing four specific subcultures--Hamiltonian, Wilsonian, Jacksonian, and Jeffersonian--that differ only in terms of the relative emphasis they place on these core values, Mead provides an historical explanation of how these schools of thought affect the goals and conduct of US foreign policy. Highly relevant for many of the contemporary discussions concerning America's role in the world.
Again, this is one I require for my novel course, and it's one of my favorites. It's about how we bury the atrocities we commit upon one another. In this case, it's about a little boy sent by the Kindertransport to Wales, then having his identity erased by the good couple who rescued him. Much more than that, but it's complex and intelligent.
