1. How to Be an Antiracist
Author: by Ibram X. Kendi
Published at: One World; First Edition (August 13, 2019)
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From the National Book Awardwinning author of Stamped from the Beginning comes a groundbreaking (Time) approach to understanding and uprooting racism and inequality in our societyand in ourselves. The most courageous book to date on the problem of race in the Western mind.
The New York Times NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review Time NPR The Washington Post Shelf Awareness Library Journal Publishers Weekly Kirkus ReviewsAntiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racismand, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other.
At its core, racism is a powerful system that creates false hierarchies of human value; its warped logic extends beyond race, from the way we regard people of different ethnicities or skin colors to the way we treat people of different sexes, gender identities, and body types.
2. The Gulag Archipelago
Author: by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Published at: Vintage Uk (December 31, 2002)
The Gulag Archipelago is Solzhenitsyn’s masterwork, a vast canvas of camps, prisons, transit centres and secret police, of informers and spies and interrogators and also of heroism, a Stalinist anti-world at the heart of the Soviet Union where the key to survival lay not in hope but in despair.
The work is based on the testimony of some two hundred survivors, and on the recollection of Solzhenitsyn’s own eleven years in labour camps and exile. It is both a thoroughly researched document and a feat of literary and imaginative power.
This edition has been abridged into one volume at the author’s wish and with his full co-operation.
3. DARK AGENDA: The War to Destroy Christian America
Author: by David Horowitz
Published at: Humanix Books (March 5, 2019)
“Read this disturbing but vital book.” Tucker Carlson One of the most intellectually compelling and rational defenses of Christianity’s role in America.” Gov Mike Huckabee “Exposes the intolerance of many atheists toward those who believe in God. As a Jewish agnostic, I think it is imperative that disbelievers not demonize believers and that believers not demonize disbelievers.” Alan Dershowitz DARK AGENDA is an extraordinary look into the left’s calculated efforts to create a godless, heathen American society and how these efforts must be stopped.
And it is written by David Horowitz, a Jew. A New York Times bestselling author and leading conservative thinker, Horowitz warns that the rising attacks on Christians and their beliefs threaten all Americans including Jews like himself. The liberal establishment and their radical allies envision a new millennium in which Christianity is banished, Horowitz argues.
He says that Judeo-Christian values are at the very root of America’s democracy. Kill off such values and all of our freedoms could perish. In Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America, Horowitz examines how our elites increasingly secular and atheist are pushing a radical agenda: How the left trashes Christian doctrines critical to the American Republic, much like radical Islam’s war on infidel cultures like ours.

5. Prey: Immigration, Islam, and the Erosion of Women's Rights
Author: by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Published at: Harper (February 9, 2021)
Why are so few people talking about the eruption of sexual violence and harassment in Europe’s cities? No one in a position of power wants to admit that the problem is linked to the arrival of several million migrantsmost of them young menfrom Muslim-majority countries.
In Prey, the best-selling author of Infidel, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, presents startling statistics, criminal cases and personal testimony. Among these facts: In 2014, sexual violence in Western Europe surged following a period of stability. In 2018 Germany, offences against sexual self-determination rose 36 percent from their 2014 rate; nearly two-fifths of the suspects were non-German.
In Austria in 2017, asylum-seekers were suspects in 11 percent of all reported rapes and sexual harassment cases, despite making up less than 1 percent of the total population. This violence isn’t a figment of alt-right propaganda, Hirsi Ali insists, even if neo-Nazis exaggerate it.
It’s a real problem that Europeand the worldcannot continue to ignore. She explains why so many young Muslim men who arrive in Europe engage in sexual harassment and violence, tracing the roots of sexual violence in the Muslim world from institutionalized polygamy to the lack of legal and religious protections for women.
6. How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps
Author: by Ben Shapiro
Published at: Broadside Books (July 21, 2020)
A growing number of Americans want to tear down what it’s taken us 250 years to buildand they’ll start by canceling our shared history, ideals, and culture. Traditional areas of civic agreement are vanishing. We can’t agree on what makes America special.
We can’t even agree that America is special. We’re coming to the point that we can’t even agree what the word America itself means. Disintegrationists say we’re stronger together, but their assault on America’s history, philosophy, and culture will only tear us apart.
Who are the disintegrationists? From Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States to the New York Times’ 1619 project, many modern analyses view American history through the lens of competing oppressions, a racist and corrupt experiment from the very beginning.
They see American philosophy as a lie beautiful words pasted over a thoroughly rotted system. They see America’s culture of rights as a faade that merely reinforces traditional hierarchies of power, instead of being the only culture that guarantees freedom for individuals.

Written in the midst of radical political developments whose direction Alinsky was one of the first to question, this volume exhibits his style at its best.

11. Cancel Culture: The Latest Attack on Free Speech and Due Process
Author: by Alan Dershowitz
Published at: Hot Books (November 17, 2020)
In Cancel Culture, Alan DershowitzNew York Times bestselling author and one of America’s most respected legal scholarsmakes an argument for free speech, due process, and restraint against the often overeager impulse to completely cancel individuals and institutions at the ever-changing whims of social media-driven crowds.
Alan Dershowitz has been called one of the most prominent and consistent defenders of civil liberties in America by Politico and the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights by Newsweek.
Yet he has come under intense criticism for his steadfast and consistent championing of those same principles, and his famed shoeontheotherfoot test, to those who have been cancelled for any number of faults, both real and imagined. Cancel Culture is a defense of due process, free speech, and even-handedness in the application of judgment.
It makes the case for restraint and care in decisions about whom and what to cancel, boycott, deplatform, and bar from public life, and offers recommendations for when, why, and to what degree these steps may be appropriate, as long as objective, fair-minded criteria can be determined and met.
12. WORDS FOR WARRIORS: Fight Back Against Crazy Socialists and the Toxic Liberal Left
Author: by Sam Sorbo
Published at: Humanix Books (January 26, 2021)

Sam Sorbo is on a mission to reclaim today’s hot button/culture war words for all freedom-loving Americans.
After hearing all the hatred spewing from ideologues, mainstream media, social justice warriors, and political hacks, Sam Sorbo was fed up: I’m tired of their games, so I’m calling BS on them. It’s time to set the record straight, especially for the folks who are just trying to enjoy the lives the Lord gave them and want a few things explained in easy-to-understand prose.

Author: by Ishmael Beah
Published at: Sarah Crichton Books; 1st edition (August 5, 2008)
This is how wars are fought now: by children, hopped-up on drugs and wielding AK-47s. Children have become soldiers of choice. In the more than fifty conflicts going on worldwide, it is estimated that there are some 300,000 child soldiers.
Ishmael Beah used to be one of them. What is war like through the eyes of a child soldier? How does one become a killer?How does one stop? Child soldiers have been profiled by journalists, and novelists have struggled to imagine their lives.

By thirteen, he’d been picked up by the government army, and Beah, at heart a gentle boy, found that he was capable of truly terrible acts. This is a rare and mesmerizing account, told with real literary force and heartbreaking honesty.”My new friends have begun to suspect I haven’t told them the full story of my life.

16. Are Prisons Obsolete?
Author: by Angela Y. Davis
Published at: Seven Stories Press (April 1, 2003)
With her characteristic brilliance, grace and radical audacity, Angela Y. Davis has put the case for the latest abolition movement in American life: the abolition of the prison. As she quite correctly notes, American life is replete with abolition movements, and when they were engaged in these struggles, their chances of success seemed almost unthinkable.
For generations of Americans, the abolition of slavery was sheerest illusion. Similarly,the entrenched system of racial segregation seemed to last forever, and generations lived in the midst of the practice, with few predicting its passage from custom. The brutal, exploitative (dare one say lucrative?
Convict-lease system that succeeded formal slavery reaped millions to southern jurisdictions (and untold miseries for tens of thousands of men, and women). Few predicted its passing from the American penal landscape. Davis expertly argues how social movements transformed these social, political and cultural institutions, and made such practices untenable.
