The 2007 Highlands Forum Reading List

Just in time for your holiday shopping, the Highlands Forum 2007 Reading List features 28 books (mostly non-fiction, but including three reports and three works of fiction this year), covering biography, management, economics, history, information technology, political thrillers, science fiction, comparative politics and sociology, contemporary conflict studies, and current events. Among these, we have four books recommended by guest reviewers. Our panel of guest editors this year includes Congressman Mac Thornberry of Texas; Newsweek technology reporter and author Steven Levy; Google's Director of Research Peter Norvig; and Grammy award-winning musician and now defense analyst Jeff "Skunk" Baxter.

The 2007 Highlands Forum Reading List, as always, consists of several categories. Most titles are new; some are classics worth discovering for the first time. They have been selected both for their topics and for their capacity to broaden our understanding of emerging issues and inform the way we think about things. We began compiling an annual list in 2000, at the request of many Highlands participants who read our periodic book reviews on the Web site. This is a continuing work - additional titles will be added during the year and compiled at the end of each year in a larger list. Peruse our lists for 2000-2006.
