On Donald Kagan: I have to admit that I've not read any of his books; they're big syntheses which seem very well respected, but for whatever reason I've wound up getting into the things he discusses from more argumentative angles. G.E.M. de Ste. Croix, for example, on the origins of the Peloponnesian War, I really enjoyed--but it's not the only thing one should read on the topic, since it makes some fairly overreaching statements that have provoked good research--but haven't been accepted as the most broadly accurate understanding of what happened.

I'll give it a try. Thanks, Smiley
Hello, I loved both American dad and Cannibal in Manhattan, though its years since I read them, and her essay book Area Code 212 is very good for the most part.
My copy of Slaves of New York is one I got on a holiday to Baltimore, found in a free book library. a bit ragged but lovely 1st edition, D.
I haven't read the Ebenstein book, but I'll see about getting it from the Public Library -- which I usually don't do, but Amazon's only copy is selling for 55 bucks. (As Amy Winehouse says, 'No, no, no!') What are you doing now? Still working in GIS?
