The 2003 Highlands Forum Reading List

Download the 2003 HF Reading List.

Just in time for the New Year, the Highlands Forum 2003 reading list appended below features 31 books for your reading pleasure: ten books that we used in researching topics for the 2003 meetings, Highlands Forum XXI through XXIII (two of these volumes were reviewed on the Highlands Forum Web site earlier this year); thirteen compelling titles that we have run across recently and want to share with you; and eight books recommended by our guest editors. The distinguished Highlands Forum guest editors this year are David Brin, Walter Gilbert, David Ignatius, Greg Bear, William Coleman, William Brody, and Edwin Schlossberg. Lastly, we recommend an important new report published by the Markle Foundation.

The 2003 Highlands Forum reading list comprises several categories: science, technology, management, history, sociology, international relations, science fiction, and art. Most are new titles, some are classics. They have been selected both for their topics and for their capacity to broaden our understanding of emerging issues and the way that we think about things. We began compiling an annual list in 2000 at the request of many Highlands participants who read our 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 in a larger list. If you have not yet perused them, please review our lists for 2000, 2001, and 2002.
