As a history buff, I know I love finding new-to-me books on my favorite areas of history and I'd expect others do as well. What nonfiction books geared for adults do you have? Maybe it's just what someone here has been meaning to order!
I currently have two books that qualify:
Brassey's Air Combat Reader: Historic Feats and Aviation Legends --the only copy in the system =)
Behind the Lines: Powerful and Revealing American and Foreign War Letters -- and One Man's Search to Find Them :: Andrew Carroll
Here is a list of my 3 nonfiction history books that I have on my shelf:
1) BEING DIGITAL :: Nicholas Negroponte
Thanks for looking,

When I returned to college in addition to my degree I received a certificate in women's studies. Our college was the first in the country to offer the program. One of the books required for the courses was Women, Health, and Medicine in America: A Historical Handbook. I found it very interesting material. My instructor, Judith Roy, has an article about female genital mutilation and it's place in our history. The entire book is very interesting. It's amazing how far we have come. If anyone is interested in ordering the book it does have highlighting throughout the book.
My historical non-fiction include:
FORTRESS AMERICA - The American Military and the Consequences of Peace WM. Greinder
SEASON OF BLOOD-A RWANDAN JOURNEY Fergal Keane
AMERICA BACK ON TRACK Senator Edward M. Kennedy
MY YEAR IN IRAQ - The Struggle to Build a Future of Hope Ambassador L. Paul Bremer
JUNGLE PILOT - Nate Saint, martyred missionary to Ecuador Russell T. Hitt
PLEASE ALSO CHOOSE ANY PAPERBACK ON MY BOOKSHELF AS A FREEBIE WHEN ANY OF THE ABOVE ARE ORDERED.
ALL BOOKS ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION, AND HC HAVE WITH INTACT DUSTCOVERS
