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

Ibn Khaldun's "Muqadimmah: An Introduction to History" Table of Contents 1958
Here's the Ibn Khaldun's Muqadimmah: An Introduction to History Table of Contents (1958 version). I scanned and uploaded the table of contents for each of the three volumes because I couldn't find it anywhere on the web. Therefore, it's hard to tell if you should order it or not.
The collection itself is a very ambitious history of the world and surrounding theoretical explanations.
