"The Road To Serfdom, by F.A. Hayek"

Just as relevant today as when it was first published over 60 years ago.

Cheers for the mention.

Sad to say, but I'm pretty sure a lot of my ethical development had quite a bit to do with 'Dr Who'. He's even been a bit of a role-model - right down to the terrible fashion sense.

I second Francis on 'The Road to Serfdom', it's an excellent and thought-provoking book. Definitely one that every household should possess. Much like 'The Adoption'.

Speaking of which: Waterstone's in Brighton seemed to be sold out last time I checked.

Great reading list. The Master is one of the best books I've ever read. Loved The Line of Beauty; Barbara Ehrenreich is extremely intelligent; and your list is wide-ranging in its concerns. I'd say it makes you out to be a person of intelligence, discernment and scope, but you already know you're that, I hope!

You know, MsB, I thought no one was ever going to say it. But will I actually get round to reading them...?

Sennett's Fall of Public Man is a great choice. Read his Hidden Injuries of Class too - though it's over 30 years old, it'll have on you on your feet cheering.
