Theory of Games and Economic Behavior - John von Neumann, Oskar MorgensternThis is the classic work upon which modern-day game theory is based.

Mexico: Volume 2, the Colonial Era - Alan KnightThis book is one in a three volume general history of Mexico, comprising (I) the PreConquest period to 1521, (II) the Colonial period from 1521 to 1821, and (III) the National period from 1821-present.
