📒The President S Gardens ✍ Muhsin Al-Ramli
✏The President s Gardens Book Summary : One Hundred Years of Solitude meets The Kite Runner in Saddam Hussein's Iraq. "A contemporary tragedy of epic proportions. No author is better placed than Muhsin Al-Ramli, already a star in the Arabic literary scene, to tell this story. I read it in one sitting". Hassan Blasim, winner of the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize for The Iraqi Christ. On the third day of Ramadan, the village wakes to find the severed heads of nine of its sons stacked in banana crates by the bus stop. One of them belonged to one of the most wanted men in Iraq, known to his friends as Ibrahim the Fated. How did this good and humble man earn the enmity of so many? What did he do to deserve such a death? The answer lies in his lifelong friendship with Abdullah Kafka and Tariq the Befuddled, who each have their own remarkable stories to tell. It lies on the scarred, irradiated battlefields of the Gulf War and in the ashes of a revolution strangled in its cradle. It lies in the steadfast love of his wife and the festering scorn of his daughter. And, above all, it lies behind the locked gates of The President's Gardens, buried alongside the countless victims of a pitiless reign of terror. Translated from the Arabic by Luke Leafgren

📒Black Garden ✍ Thomas de Waal
✏Black Garden Book Summary : Choice Outstanding Academic Title 2003 Black Garden is the definitive study of how Armenia and Azerbaijan, two southern Soviet republics, got sucked into a conflict that helped bring them to independence, bringing to an end the Soviet Union, and plaguing a region of great strategic importance. It cuts between a careful reconstruction of the history of Nagorny Karabakh conflict since 1988 and on-the-spot reporting on its convoluted aftermath. Part contemporary history, part travel book, part political analysis, the book is based on six months traveling through the south Caucasus, more than 120 original interviews in the region, Moscow, and Washington, and unique primary sources, such as Politburo archives. The historical chapters trace how the conflict lay unresolved in the Soviet era; how Armenian and Azerbaijani leaders exacerbated it; how the Politiburo failed to cope with the crisis; how the war began and ended; how the international community failed to sort out the conflict. What emerges is a complex and subtle portrait of a beautiful and fascinating region, blighted by historical prejudice and conflict.

📒Mens Et Mania ✍ Samuel Jay Keyser
✏Mens Et Mania Book Summary : When Jay Keyser arrived at MIT in 1977 to head theDepartment of Linguistics andPhilosophy, he writes, he "felt like a fishthat had been introduced to water for the first time." AtMIT, acolleague grabbed him by the lapels to discuss dark matter; Noam Chomsky calledhim "boss"(double SOB spelled backward?); and engaging in conflictresolution made him feel like "a marriagecounselor trying to reconcile aunion between a Jehovah's witness and a vampire."In Mens et Mania,Keyserrecounts his academic and administrative adventures during a career of morethan thirty years.Keyserdescribes the administrative side of his MIT life, not only as department headbut also asAssociate Provost and Special Assistant to the Chancellor. Keyserhad to run a department ("budgetswere like horoscopes") andnegotiate student grievances -- from thelegality of showing Deep Throat ina dormitory to theuproar caused by the arrests of students for antiapartheid demonstrations.Keyseralso describes a visiting Japanese delegation horrified by the disrepairof the linguisticsdepartment offices (Chomsky tells them "Our motto is:Physically shabby. Intellectually firstclass."); convincing a studentnot to jump off the roof of the Green Building; and recent attempts tolook atMIT through a corporate lens. And he explains the special faculty-student bondat MIT: thefaculty sees the students as themselves thirty years earlier. Keyser observes that MIT is hard togetinto and even harder to leave, for faculty as well as for students.
