The 2010 Highlands Forum Reading List

Just in time for your holiday shopping, the Highlands Forum 2010 Reading List features thirty-five books (mostly non-fiction, but including two works of fiction this year), covering biography, management, economics, history, information technology, techno thrillers, science fiction, comparative politics and sociology, contemporary conflict studies, and current events. Among these, we have four books recommended by guest reviewers. Our distinguished panel of guest editors this year includes Howard Bloom, John Nagl, Beth Noveck, and Richard Foster.

Our list is divided into four categories: books recommended by our guest reviewers; books recommended by the Highlands Forum staff; books reviewed previously during the year on the Highlands Forum website; and books used in preparation of this year's Highlands Forum meetings. Most titles are new; some are classics worth discovering for the first time. They have been selected for their themes 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, and it is a continuing work - additional titles are added during the year and compiled at the end of each year in a larger list. Click here to peruse our lists for 2000-2008.
