Good Books?

In between reading law cases I have been trying to slide in some interesting books regarding to human rights. I was wondering if any of you had some recommendations? A list books I have gone through recently are:

The Culture of Make Believe (a book about what makes America such a destructive society)

Mountains Beyond Mountains (up lifting book about a doctor in Haiti)

First World Ha Ha Ha! The Zapatista Movement

Problem From Hell: America in the Age of Genocide (chronicles of genocide since WWII and reasoning behind the lack of American involvement)

A Little Matter of Genocide (evaluation of US relations with indigenous Americans)

Overthrow (History of American Foreign Policy that resulted in overthow of foreign government)

A Dirty War by Anna Politkovskaya is a good first hand account of the war in Chechnya and the human rights abuses by the Russian government and militay.

By the way, the author of that book I reccomended, Anna Politkovskaya, was gunned down in Moscow two weeks ago in an apparent contract killing
