  • Tools for Conviviality by IVAN ILLICH has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Christopher Radtke...and Christopher has this to say about the book: "It explains why institutional inversion is necessary now. It explains why schools, medicine, transportation and government in it's current forms doesn't work and never will. I feel it paints a similar picture to Quinn's."

  • Towards a Poor Theatre by Jerzy Grotowski has been suggested by Ishmael Network member moss beynon juckes...and moss has this to say about the book: "I am not sure yet, I intuitively believe there is an undeveloped connection, and that the work of jerzy Grotowski investigates presence and essence of homo sapiens sapiens, and action-the re-connection to the: 'gods, chi, allah, enrgy, life force', and an investigation into what action can be taken to embody a revelation in the action of man on this planet which satisfies and replaces the 'sensation of satisfaction built upon material possesionin our commodity culture'"

  • Transmetropolitan: Back on the Street by Warren Ellis has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Craig Maslowski...and Craig has this to say about the book: "Transmetropolitan is a comic, but don't disregard it for that fact alone. Transmet follows the story of Spider Jerusalem, outlaw journalist. Jerusalem exposes government corruption in his column "I Hate It Here". The Jerusalem character is a model for the person Quinn is trying to reach. Dissatisfied and angry with the world yet inexplicably attracted to the corrupt and hedonistic city. Darrick Robertson illustrates this comic and his vision is truly disturbing at times. A glimpse into a very possible future. "Back on the Streets" contains issues 1-3 of the comic. Back issues are available in trade paperback format up to issue 36. The series is nearing completion at issue 60. Transmet is a comic book, but it is definitely not your typical children's variety comic book. The subject matter is adult in nature and parental discretion is HIGHLY advised."

  • Trickster : AMERICAN INDIAN MYTH by Paul Radin has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Xavier Sonnerat...and Xavier has this to say about the book: "The Trickster myth is hilarious and it shows how myths can shape people's psyches.

  • Triumph of the Nomads by Geoffrey Blainey has been suggested by Ishmael Network member nomad sunago...and nomad has this to say about the book: "For reasons of climate and geography, the Aboriginal people of Australia did not "fall" in with the agricultural revolution.

  • Twilight Of The Idols/Anti-Christ by Friederich Nietzsche has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Ron Barber...and Ron has this to say about the book: "It describes, to a 'T', the mechanics of that grandest of failures of 'Taker' Civilization - I am talking about 'Idolization'. It is a book that no 'Ishmael' reader should do without because it indicates the specifics of where our culture had faltered over the past two thousand+ years."
    Check out and/or Order Twilight Of The Idols/Anti-Christ from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Uncommon Ground: Rethinking the Human Place in Nature by William Cronon has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Matt Clarke...and Matt has this to say about the book: "I recently started reading an exceprt, entitled "The Trouble With Wilderness," from this book. Although I haven't finished reading the article, I just joined the Ishmael Community and thought I'd share what I've read so far. Cronon is advocating a revision of how we define the term wilderness. Cronon argues that our current definition of "wilderness" is flawed in the sense that it leaves no place for humans; the only relationship humans of Taker culture can have with nature is one of distant reverie. Cronon suggests we redefine "wilderness" by re-establishing a relationship with it."

  • Understanding Stupidity: An Analysis of the Unnatural Selection of Ideas, Beliefs and Behavior in Institutions and Organizations by James Welles has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Bob Coleman...and Bob has this to say about the book: "This is a brilliant highly accessible book in spite of the sometimes unavoidable terminology. Briefly defined on page 7, stupidity is "a schematically generated, self-deceptive breakdown of the feedback mechanism between behavior and the environment. This breakdown necessarily follows from stupidity's success in creating an arbitrary world ... Understanding is sacrificed for the sake of social cohesion and cultural stability." See the author's related listed book entitled The Story of Stupidity."

  • Vanishing Voices by Daniel Nettle & Suzanne Romaine has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Gene S...and Gene has this to say about the book: "This book deals with the extinction of the World's languages. The issues of linguistic diversity are very close to Quinn's concerns about diversity in general. With a language loss also comes a loss of genuine bodies of knowledge, sometimes accumulated over thousands of years. The book also does an excellent job discussing the causes for this extinction and demonstrating how the indigenous languages fall victim to the Taker cultures and civilization."

Never before have I heard the Taker and Leaver philosophies expressed so clearly in peoples' actual mouths. Many of us follow Mother Culture blindly, but that logger in chapter 3 is the first I ever heard actually _say_ there would be no point to having forests at all without logging! The chapter on the indians was even better."

  • Walden II by B.F. Skinner has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Scott Goode...and Scott has this to say about the book: "Walden II presents an idea of a different way of living; a breaking out of our prison if you will. It presents a community that resembles a tribal life style in a modern day setting. The individuals depend on the community for their survival and the community depends on the individuals for its survival. B.F. Skinner examines how to create a different civilizational system through different educational models, production models, governmental models,and relationships and interactions. Though this utopian community does not spit out the seed of the tree of right and wrong/who shall live and die, it does pose interesting ideas about different ways to live; none of them right or wrong, but what works for that group of people. "
    Check out and/or Order Walden II from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Walden Two by B.F. Skinner has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Mark Meritt...and Mark has this to say about the book: "This book and "Atlas Shrugged" are Bizarro-world versions of each other. They are virtual opposites, and both are interesting as much for what they have in common with Quinn as what they don't. Let me reiterate - this is *not* consistent with Quinn, but interesting food for thought."
    Check out and/or Order Walden Two from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • War Between the Pitiful Teachers and the Splendid Kids by Stanley Kiesel has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Laura Bouma...and Laura has this to say about the book: "This is an excellent book to give to young children or adolescents, to get them interested in some of Daniel Quinn's ideas. This book has a storyline common to many adolescent books (school bad, kids good) yet it manages to keep the plot original and interesting, and avoids stereotypes of evil teachers (despite the title, many of the teachers in the book are are on the side of the kids, and the real enemy is the _system_, not teachers or books or learning.) This book is very odd, and adults may not enjoy it, but I guarantee that any 12 year old who attends school will identify with it. It is a great book to lead into reading My Ishmael. This book is out of print, however."
    Check out and/or Order War Between the Pitiful Teachers and the Splendid Kids from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • War, Lies, and Videotape: How media monopoly stifles truth by Edited by Lenora Foerstel has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Eric Eyles...and Eric has this to say about the book: "An in depth look @ how "Mother Culture" is made manifest through use of the powerful media industry, and how we are manipulated and lied to in an effort to maintain our current social order. An eye-opening discussion about how economic interests drive modern journalism, and truth is a sometimes useful, always amorphous commodity. Please note: this book is currently available only through International Action Center, @iacenter.org."

  • Watership Down by Richard Adams has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Ben Verbeck...and Ben has this to say about the book: "Watership Down brings you inside the world of rabbits searching for a new home. The home that they once had was destroyed by man. I recommended this book because when i read it, I thought about how different the world would be had rabbits gained consciousness. Any animal for that matter. If a rabbit was able to communicate with us after gaining consciousness, we couldn't build a landfill over their homes. We couldn't pollute their rivers, and thanks to animal rights groups,the crooked politicians and hunters couldn't just mass exterminate the rabbits."
    Check out and/or Order Watership Down from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Weaving the Web : The Original Design and Ultimate Destiny of the World Wide Web by its Inventor by Tim Berners-Lee has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jamie Myxter...and Jamie has this to say about the book: "Weaving the Web is an easy book to read to understand the origins of the World Wide Web. (The World Wide Web is one piece of what is known as the Internet.) It is written for ordinary readers, and not for technologists.

    The book relates to themes found in Ishmael in the following ways:

    (1) Quinn uses examples of change for us to look at, such as the dismantling of the former Soviet Union, or the incremental changes that occurred during the industrial revolution. This book chronicles the incremental changes that made the Web possible. Some ideas were new, some were quite old, but at a certain point and with the right combination, the ideas really took off into something that its inventor couldn't have imagined.

    (2) Weaving acknowledges politics as an important piece of change. Berners-Lee writes candidly about the politics at CERN, the difficulties in promoting a new idea, the difficulties of getting people on board with a new idea, the difficulties of dealing with people, and the ways in which he would "disguise" his project as one thing when he knew that it was, or that the potential to be, another thing. (Politics of everyday people and organizations...not global or national politics.)

    (3) Weaving made me realize that, to Berners-Lee, the rise of the Web seemed sluggish and slow. It seemed to take forever. It seemed, to use a common adage, to be like watching a pot boil. However, by NOT being Berners-Lee, we have the additional perspective that lets us see that, although it seemed TO HIM that nothing was happening, the rise of the Web was actually meteoric.

    (4) It's not done yet! We tend to think of the Web as the Web...it is what it is. Maybe someone will improve graphics a little, or tweak things to improve bandwidth...we'll be able to get MORE of it, but it'll be essentially the same thing we know today. According to Berners-Lee, this isn't the case at all. The Web is still very much in development, and being changed and driven by private interests (corporations, the development community) and public interests (standards bodies, W3C, etc.)."
    Check out and/or Order Weaving the Web : The Original Design and Ultimate Destiny of the World Wide Web by its Inventor from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Web of Life by Fritjof Capra has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Kobin Caddick...and Kobin has this to say about the book: "Capra and Quinn come to the same conclusion (that people must change or we will wipe ourselves out) by different methods: Quinn philosophically, Capra scientifically. Capra discusses systems thinking, Gaia and chaos theory, and presents some interesting views on the paradigm shift of values that must occur for people to change. He also suggests some ecological policies that will help sustain human life. The book is a bit dense but nonetheless just as poignant and significant as Ishmael."
    Check out and/or Order Web of Life from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Web site by n/a n/a has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Mark Sample...and Mark has this to say about the book: "This document gives very objective and clear data on the effects of overpopulation. Exploitive effects of the global economy and a global dependence on a shrinking resource pool are characterized and are particularly alarming. Carrying capacity and limits of sustainability are factually presented with very gloomy accuracy."
    Check out and/or Order Web site from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Deana Kanipe...and Deana has this to say about the book: "Welcome to the Monkey House is a compilation of Vonnegut's short stories that will spark the imagination and curiousity of any reader. Many of the futuristic hypotheses raised in the book involve what could happen to our society if we continue on the same path of destruction that we follow today. Some situations include overpopulation issues, governmental mind control, and other facinating sci-fi tales that could easily become reality. I highly recommend Harrison Bergeron... for obvious reasons."
    Check out and/or Order Welcome to the Monkey House from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • What Color is Your Parachute by Richard Nelson Bolles has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Nabil Asaad...and Nabil has this to say about the book: "This book takes you step-by-step through what you need to do to find your mission in life.

  • What Dreams May Come by Richard Matheson has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Samuel Sampson...and Samuel has this to say about the book: "This is an amazing book that shows the importance of the human condition by taking a view of a suspected afterlife. Taking into acount what I learned from Ishmael and this book, I can successfully say that my perceptions of humanity have drasticaly changed for the better on all fronts. Here and now (Ishmael) and the here after (What Dreams May Come)."

  • What is a Law of Nature? by D.M. Armstrong has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Daniel Scott...and Daniel has this to say about the book: "A meaty book, Armstrong searches for a logically definitive way of explaining what a "Law of Nature" is. He develops a controversial topic on metaphysics and the philosiphy of Science."
    Check out and/or Order What is a Law of Nature? from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • What is Communist anarchism by Alexander Berkman has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Johnny Fowler...and Johnny has this to say about the book: "This book gives the vision of a huge anarchist movement in Russia before the 1917 revolution. I gives a template of social organization based around how people "make a living". Theoretical anarchism is very close New tribalism as an organizational technique."
    Check out and/or Order What is Communist anarchism from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • What is Communist Anarchism by Alexander Berkman has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Chris Clements...and Chris has this to say about the book: "This book discusses the evils and illogic of capitalism and "wage-slavery". It discribes how it is distructive and wasteful to produce more than we need to sustain life. It offers a clear alternative to our current way of life."
    Check out and/or Order What is Communist Anarchism from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • What's The Use of Big History? by David Christian has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Traci Robinette...and Traci has this to say about the book: "********** THIS IS NOT A BOOK, CLICKING THE AMAZON LINK WILL NOT WORK. THIS IS AN ARTICLE, AND THE FULL TEXT CAN BE ACCESSED HERE: http://worldhistoryconnected.press.uiuc.edu/3.1/christian.html ********** This is a really interesting article that has parallels to some of the concepts explored in Ishmael. For instance he talks at length about the agricultural revolution as it ultimately relates to the population explosion. He calls it "increasing control of energy" rather than "locking up the food," but it's the same concept. The really interesting bit is that he focuses on SUCH a large scale, but manages to arrive at many of the same points as Ishmael, and to portray the same overall attitude. It's fascinating, really. I mean, this guy is exploring the origins of the UNIVERSE (yep, as in all the way back to the Big Bang) as a means to get a better context for more current history and "see familiar things in new ways." "
