I think one thing any young radical needs is a list of useful resources. I have been influenced by a great many books. Reading books and collecting ideas from them is both an intellectual and spiritual exercise for me. I love to read; I have since I was a kid. I cannot even express the joy of thinking of reading gives me. I think one of our keys to resisting the overwhelming culture of apathy and status quo disinterest in justice is through reading.
While I recognize that there are many book lists out there, I figured I should create my own with synopses of what the book is about and why it was and is important to me.
