We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families: Stories from Rwanda by Philip Gourevitch
Disposable People: New Slavery in the Global Economy by Kevin Bales
Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America by Barbara Ehrenreich.
I'm also looking at Darfur: the Ambiguous Genocide by Gérard Prunier for my next read (after I finish the giant stack by my bed).
I highly recommend all of them. Are there any books (I'm thinking specifically social/political issues, but feel free to chime in with anything else) you would make required reading? I'm asking for general interest, but also because I'm glad I read these books and would like to read other similar books, if anyone had recommendations.
