Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell

The more we seek to understand strangers, the more elusive they become. Brilliantly pertinent, eloquent, and captivating, Gladwell’s Talking to Strangers explores our interactions with strangers through narratives of CIA interrogations, college sexual assaults, the Amanda Knox case, bail arraignment hearings, and more. These interactions—playing on our inherent biases about the truth—have historically led to devastating mistakes when not approached with caution and humility. For everyone from the politically engaged citizen to the college freshman, Talking to Strangers is a must-read. - Charlotte

The Zookeepers' War by J.W. Mohnhaupt

An unconventional angle to a familiar history of the Cold War, The Zookeepers’ War chronicles the quirky and often comical strategies of two dueling zoos: one in West Berlin and one in East Berlin. The story of Berlin’s zoos, whose exotic animal stockpiling rivaled the pace of the nuclear arms race, exposes untold complexities through humorous anecdotes and intricate plays of political power. Originally published in German, The Zookeepers’ War quickly became an international bestseller and has now been translated into English. - Charlotte
