Daily reading for foreign affairs afficionados with an emphasis on the culture and literature of Africa and poetry in general. Also, a repository of musings from life in the PGON (Pentagon) and as a post-grad student. Most of my book reviews are now over at www.kruzoo.blogspot.com
"But being right, even morally right, isn't everything. It is also important to be competent, to be consistent, and to be knowledgeable. It's important for your soldiers and diplomats to speak the language of the people you want to influence. It's important to understand the ethnic and tribal divisions of the place you hope to assist." -Anne Applebaum

There is no FAO book list but THIS FAO book list and FUUO is the messenger of FAO book lists.
NOTE: I have made a new page tab for this evolving list of books on my home page. I will add to this there so be sure to check there periodically.
"There is no FAO book list but THIS FAO book list and FUUO is the messenger of FAO book lists."
I created this list because there isn't anyone else doing it at an easy to access space and because I LOVE BOOKS! They are one of my favorite things in the entire world! While I this page is entitled THE FAO Book List, my intent is for it to be useful to any officer working with a certain region.
In creating THE list I have borrowed heavily from other lists that I have come across and also relied heavily on my own research. I have not read all of these books (the ones I have read are noted with a *) but will link them to my reviews once I do read them. All fiction titles are printed in orange.
If you have suggestions please comment and I will add them. As I have time I will hyperlink the book titles to their listings on Amazon. Also, if you have a review/thoughts that you've written that you'd like me to link to I will do so happily.
ATTENTION: IS THIS LIST TOO OVERWHELMING? I'VE PUT TOGETHER A STARTER READING LIST HERE. Middle East
