Erasure - Percival Everett"Thelonious (Monk) Ellison has never allowed race to define his identity. But as both a writer and an African American, he is offended and angered by the success of We's Lives in Da Ghetto, the exploitative debut novel of a young, middle-class black woman who once visited "some relatives in Harlem for a couple of days." Hailed as an authentic representation of the African American experience, the book is a national bestseller and its author feted on the Kenya Dunston television show.

How Wars End: Why We Always Fight the Last Battle - Gideon RoseIN 1991 THE UNITED STATES trounced the Iraqi army in battle only to stumble blindly into postwar turmoil.
