|Minnetonka Library Staff's Comments|
|Genesis : Truman, American Jews, and the origins of the Arab/Israeli conflict |
by Judis, John B.
An unsparing look at Zionism and the pro-Israel lobby and the effects on U. S. politics. An eye-opener. posted Apr 7, 2014 at 6:33AM
|Dirty wars : the world is a battlefield |
by Scahill, Jeremy.
Read this and see if you still think we're the Good Guys. posted Apr 2, 2014 at 3:00PM
|Thank you for your service |
by Finkel, David, 1955-
A follow up to The Good Soldiers which follows some of the veterans after their return to the U.S. Their stories are heart-rending. Should be required reading by anyone serving in or running for Congress. posted Apr 2, 2014 at 2:55PM
|The good soldiers [sound recording] |
by Finkel, David, 1955-
Mr. Finkel follows U.S. Army soldiers through their 14 month deployment in Irag. The story is both heartbreaking and infuriating. You are left asking yourself how we could send young men 17, 18, 19, and 20 years old into such a hellish situation. Should be required reading by anyone serving in or running for Congress. posted Apr 2, 2014 at 2:52PM
|Go : a Kidd's guide to graphic design |
by Kidd, Chip.
From your tube of toothpaste to the billboards on the highway, graphic design is everywhere. But what makes good graphic design, especially in today's world where easy-to-use tech gizmos often result in lousy-looking graphics? This book shows and explains it in an easy, eye-appealing and cool way. A great book for all ages. posted Mar 21, 2014 at 2:28PM
