  • 1984 by George Orwell has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Sean Goodman...and Sean has this to say about the book: "If we keep going, this might be one place where we end up as a society. I've been reading a lot of books relating to cultures and societies recently, and feel that 1984 is one of those "must read" books. Mother Culture would have you believe that Leaving is not possible; in 1984 the main character (indeed, the majority of the people in the society portrayed in this book) is lead to believe many things which are patently not true. Living in fear, doubt, uncertanty; unable to travel more than a short distance without having your papers in order; 1984 is a world to be feared, as is a world where the Takers are the only representatives of our race."
    Check out and/or Order 1984 from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • 1984 by George Orwell has been suggested by Ishmael Network member William Piner...and William has this to say about the book: "One of the key aspects of "Ishmael" is the warning that if we continue to live the way we have lived since the dawn of modern human civilization, then some very extreme nastiness will take place. This warning was the central motivation for Orwell while writing his masterpiece."
    Check out and/or Order 1984 from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • 2050 Volume One: Gods of Little Earth by J Zornado has been suggested by Ishmael Network member J. Zornado...and J. has this to say about the book: "It is a novel that speculates where things will be given how things are now. It follows the premises set forth in Ishmael regarding Taker Culture and the consumption of the planet. What will the future bring in 2050? This story explores our near future, as well as the future some 2000 years later. This novel also is informed by the ideas set forth in J. Zornado's first book (recommended by DQ), Inventing the Child. 2050 Volume One: Gods of Little Earh is character-driven speculative fiction."
    Check out and/or Order 2050 Volume One: Gods of Little Earth from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • 42-- Evolutionary Science and its uses in Everyday Life, Civil Rights, and World Peace by Ezra Niesen has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Ezra Niesen...and Ezra has this to say about the book: "The Story of B is a blueprint for a social evolution. However, it's based on the Noble Savage model of human behavior, which does not withstand critical scientific scrutiny. (For one obvious example, the United States won the American Revolution because the Americans learned a lot of very well developed warfare tactics from Native Americans-- who had been fighting wars against each other for millenia.) Thanks to a number of recent advances that have been made in evolutionary psychology, a functional model of human behavior does exist, and it can be combined with Mr. Quinn's blueprint for social evolution to make The Story of B happen in real life. Humans evolved as the same species because the same set of biological laws affected all of our ancestors for all of our evolution. By now, these laws are written in our DNA, because anyone who didn't feel like following them died out. All human behavior revolves around this set of evolutionary laws. By being consciously aware of these evolutionary laws, people can eliminate a lot of conflict from their personal lives and their interpersonal relations. No existing form of government can adequately serve the needs of its people, because no existing form of government is founded on a functional understanding of human behavior-- because that understanding of human behavior is only a few years old. As long as artifical laws don't coincide with evolutionary laws, conflict in a society is inevitable. To eliminate that conflict, a government must found its artificial laws on the evolutionary laws of its people. "

  • A Brief History of Everything by Ken Wilber has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jim Hughes...and Jim has this to say about the book: "The title itself is good, because it *is* about everything. It's how things interact, at all different levels. It's about how things are built of other things (Holons are built of holons), and are not at a different level but rather transcend and include. This book - and its author (read ANY other work by this man) are comprehensive and VERY illuminating."
    Check out and/or Order A Brief History of Everything from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Brief History of Everything by Ken Wilbur has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Bruce Hogge...and Bruce has this to say about the book: "Wilbur brings a highly spritual soul together with a deep understanding of science and philosophy and weaves them together into an eye openning treatise. This unique writer is a gift to those seeking deeper insights that link us all."
    Check out and/or Order A Brief History of Everything from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Buddhist Bible by Dwight Goddard has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Daniel Grabowski...and Daniel has this to say about the book: "It helps bring scope and chronology to Quinn's foward utopian thinking."
    Check out and/or Order A Buddhist Bible from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Canticle For Leibowitz by Walter Miller Jr. has been suggested by Ishmael Network member justin bowers...and justin has this to say about the book: "a story of a technological cultures way of making the same mistakes over and over,despite the best intentions of individuals. told over two millenia."
    Check out and/or Order A Canticle For Leibowitz from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Aaron Gudmunson...and Aaron has this to say about the book: "Call it what you will: savage satire, nasty shocker, nightmare vision of the future. Burgess' novella is all of these and more. The story centers on Alex, a teenage boy, and his band of droogs who spend their time stealing, raping, and beating while speaking in a vicious invented slang that seamlessly renders their social pathology. When the state attempts to reform Alex through a radical new technique, the questions must be asked, "At what cost?" and "To what end?""
    Check out and/or Order A Clockwork Orange from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Collaboration With Nature by Andy Goldsworthy has been suggested by Ishmael Network member jonathan k...and jonathan has this to say about the book: "lots of great photos of goldsworthy sculpturs showing his animistic vision in a visual context"
    Check out and/or Order A Collaboration With Nature from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Comparative Investigation of Economic Systems & Corresponding Environmental Effects by Mark Davern has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Mark Davern...and Mark has this to say about the book: "Gives a concrete look at the various effects of living under or within certain economic systems."
    Check out and/or Order A Comparative Investigation of Economic Systems & Corresponding Environmental Effects from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Course in Miracles by Foundation for Inner Peace has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Spencer Kellum...and Spencer has this to say about the book: "The curriculum the Course proposes is carefully conceived and is explained, step by step, at both the theoretical and practical levels. It emphasizes application rather than theory, and experience rather than theology. Although Christian in statement, the Course deals with universal spiritual themes. It emphasizes that it is but one version of the universal curriculum. There are many others, this one differing from them only in form. They all lead to God in the end."
    Check out and/or Order A Course in Miracles from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Discourse on Inequality by Jean Jacques Rousseau has been suggested by Ishmael Network member David Campbell...and David has this to say about the book: "Comparing the respective visions of the two works gives one a better read on the geographies our culture has narrated/traversed over the past 250 years."
    Check out and/or Order A Discourse on Inequality from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A General Theory of Love by Fari Amini has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Dawn Pillsbury...and Dawn has this to say about the book: "A General Theory of Love presents a compelling vision of how the human limbic system influences our desires and behaviors, and how those systems are similar to our primate ond other relatives. Amini, Lewis and Lannon's theory, I believe, puts some muscle behind Quinn's ideas of how humans are happy interacting with one another and why people aren't happy today. You'll never think about your mother the same again..."
    Check out and/or Order A General Theory of Love from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Green history of the World by Clive Ponting has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Ian Abbott...and Ian has this to say about the book: "This book provides a similar overview of the 'real' history of the world as given in Ishmael. It helps explain in some detail, how and why things came to be the way they are. Definitely worth reading for anyone who enjoyed Ishmael."
    Check out and/or Order A Green history of the World from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Green History of the World by Clive Ponting has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Agnes Boddington...and Agnes has this to say about the book: "Reading this book I was amazed to find how many of DQ's ideas are in this book: taker versus leaver society (although they are here called hunter-gatherers and agriculturalists; the consequences for Earth from agriculture and later global trade etc. I had to find a second-hand copy of this book, but it was worth the search."
    Check out and/or Order A Green History of the World from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A HIstory of God: The 4000-Year Quest of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam by Karen Armstrong has been suggested by Ishmael Network member George Peterson...and George has this to say about the book: "Karen Armstrong gives a concise, amazing, and completely shocking history of the Judeo-Christian God and how he came to be known as such. Very dense, but a great read nonetheless."
    Check out and/or Order A HIstory of God: The 4000-Year Quest of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A History of Warfare by John Keegan has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Lewismarsh Marshlewis...and Lewismarsh has this to say about the book: "This confirms that warfare occers in leaver societys as is described in My Ishmael and may also gives evidence that wars of conquest may be just another sign of distress in our civilisation. This is an indepth view of warfare and these ideas are not discussed from the viewpoint of Ishmael"
    Check out and/or Order A History of Warfare from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Language Older Than Words by Derrick Jensen has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Charlene Grainger...and Charlene has this to say about the book: "Derrick Jensen GETS IT - this book is primarily about the problem(s) of civilization. I had already read Ishmael when I read ALOTW, and for me it was like the next step. Ishmael is very true and mindblowing, don't get me wrong, but Ishmael is like the theory / intellectual message, while LOTW is like a punch in the guts. I wish EVERYONE would read this book. I am so deeply grateful that this book was written. Add it to your wishlist, and if you ever come across it... read it! "

  • A Manual For a Perfect Government by John Hagelin has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Matthew Lasek...and Matthew has this to say about the book: "The author presents politics governed by "Natural Law." An interesting and relevent argument for anyone disenfranchised by mainstream politics."
    Check out and/or Order A Manual For a Perfect Government from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A MidSummer Night's Dream by William Shakespear has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Tom Undine...and Tom has this to say about the book: "It gives truth on relationship and family. It gives truth people relating with people. Read it and find out its truth for yourself."
    Check out and/or Order A MidSummer Night's Dream from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Nation of Sheep by William J. Lederer has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jason B...and Jason has this to say about the book: "Some ways to vanquish the apathy so prevalent in America, from a coauthor of The Ugly American."
    Check out and/or Order A Nation of Sheep from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Zoe Zuniga...and Zoe has this to say about the book: "The consciousness needs to change before we can be content to go back to a leaver mentality. This book points to the way to regain the consciousness that makes it possible to let go of grasping onto things and fearing losing what we think we have."
    Check out and/or Order A New Earth from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Nicholas Chill...and Nicholas has this to say about the book: "Much like Quinn's books, Eckhart Tolle's works focus on the dysfunction that is our present human culture. The difference with Tolle's work, however, is that he focuses on the issue from the viewpoint of within ourselves. The answer comes from a spiritual place, at a level where we are all connected. Within the Stillness of our being."
    Check out and/or Order A New Earth from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Pattern Language by Christopher Alexander has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jay Tulley...and Jay has this to say about the book: ""APL" and sister books in the series, "The Timeless Way of Building" and "The Oregon Experiment" present the theory and then methods of building homes and communities that nourish us. These books have rocked me as hard as Quinn's books which is to say, incredibly hard. The concept of imitating what works in other cultures is similar to Quinn's. Alexander presents notions that will give you the same type of "Aha!" that Ishmael and B did. And for all those who ask "So what do I do?" Read these books for a piece of the vision that must sweep us. These are books of hope. Something we all need if we have any chance of saving the world."
    Check out and/or Order A Pattern Language from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Carrie Mylott...and Carrie has this to say about the book: "It presents further evidence of "how things came to be this way". It is the story of US history that is not taught in public schools. It is told from the perspective of the native american, the slave, the oppressed woman. This is not a history book written by the victor. It is the truth."
    Check out and/or Order A People's History of the United States from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A People's History of the United States: 1492 to Present by Howard Zinn has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Russ Hopfenberg...and Russ has this to say about the book: ""Arawak men and women, naked, tawny and full of wonder, emerged from their villages onto the island's beaches and swam out to get a closer look at the strange big boat. When Columbus and his sailors came ashore carrying swords, speaking oddly, the Arawaks ran to greet them, brought them food, water, gifts. He later wrote of them in his log: They brought us...and many other things. They are well built, with good bodies and handsome fatures. They do not bear arms...With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want." So the book begins."

  • A Pilgram's Journey Volume One: 1986-1995 by Mark A. Baker has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Matthew Paulus...and Matthew has this to say about the book: "To put it most simply, this is a book of skills, like many of the other books I suggest. My friend George Machoud told me once "When I was younger, I lived in a Tipi and earned a living trapping. I was never happier or healthier. We always had fresh meat for dinner, and I never got sick unless friends from the city came to visit. It taught me that I didn't need the government's programs." George was living in a different way, a way similar to that of the Native Americans hundreds of years ago. This book, and all the books I have on the skills of the trappers, hunters, and scouts of the early american colonies, as well as the skills of the native tribes of this land offer a look at another way of life that is still just as viable today as it was 500 years ago."

  • A Pilgram's Journey Volume Two: 1996-2005 by Mark A. Baker has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Matthew Paulus...and Matthew has this to say about the book: "This is a continuation of the works of Mark A. Baker. The more I read about his journey to understand the life of the colonial longhunter, the more I see paralels to my own journey into the past looking for clues of what worked for humans, what didn't work, and how it might be applied to life today. Things learned from re-enacting often give us insights we might've missed otherwise. Learning to see the world through the eyes of someone 300-400 years ago can be a valuable tool."
    Check out and/or Order A Pilgram's Journey Volume Two: 1996-2005 from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Primate's Memoir by Robert Sapolsky has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Zuber Patel...and Zuber has this to say about the book: "things that stand out for me: explores what takers might call power in a social setting.. but with primate like subtlety, also describes how it fits into the larger context of an ape tribe....amongst a million other things that have nothing to do with the above as well."
    Check out and/or Order A Primate's Memoir from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Reason For Hope by Jane Goodall has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Daniel Farrell...and Daniel has this to say about the book: "Goodall has experienced the life of the chimpanzees of Gombe for thirty years. She has given an unbiased opinion of the world we live by contrasting it with the lives of our closest non-human ancestors, the last few species that shows how living as a leaver still works today. She inspires hope and enthusiasm towards "saving the world"."

  • A Religion of Nature by Donald Crosby has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Michael McClurg...and Michael has this to say about the book: "The author explores the realm of what we call 'nature' as a spiritual realm one that deserves as much respect and awe as is given to the gods of mainstream religions. The book explores humanity's role in 'nature'. Crosby tells the story of his jump from theism to his 'religion of nature'. The book sereves as a reminder of how incredibly blessed we are to have this incredible entity called 'nature' surrounding us."
    Check out and/or Order A Religion of Nature from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jonathan Cohen...and Jonathan has this to say about the book: "Leopold was one the first to step back and take stock of our culture's effect on nature, and he paints pictures with his words that are vivid and unforgettable."
    Check out and/or Order A Sand County Almanac from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A short History of nearly Everything by Bill Bryson has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Eilidh Benedetti...and Eilidh has this to say about the book: "In your reading list I noticed a lot of books with titles like: a brief history of (this) , a short history of (that), so for the sake of completeness you shouldn't miss out on this one. It is refreshing. That's the effect it had on me. There is a good laugh in it here and there, and a wealth of interesting information about the history of science, of course."
    Check out and/or Order A short History of nearly Everything from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Short History of Progress by Ronald Wright has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Chris Pannell...and Chris has this to say about the book: "It's about the need for change in human behaviour at a global level; the need to not deplete all the global resources that sustain us; a history of how prior human civilizations and cultures met their decline and demise."
    Check out and/or Order A Short History of Progress from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Short History of Progress by Ronald Wright has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Erik Halliwell...and Erik has this to say about the book: "It explains how previous civilizations have destroyed themselves, Easter Island, etc. It is written partly anthropologically if I am interpreting it correctly."
    Check out and/or Order A Short History of Progress from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Short History of the Future by W. William Wager has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jared Troutman...and Jared has this to say about the book: "The book is seperated into three parts. The first concludes this section of history in a world wide nuclear disaster and no one knows who started it. The next section details the emergence and continuence of a world wide socialism. The final section and the end of the glimpse into the future tells of how the socialism is abandoned for tribalism!!!!!!!"
    Check out and/or Order A Short History of the Future from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Story like the Wind by Laurens Van Der Post has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Bob Armantrout...and Bob has this to say about the book: "This story, written in 1972, shares some of the "pearls" of cultural wisdom revealed to the author through his personal relationship with the Bushmen of his homeland. His story, told through the eyes of a young man coming of age, gives insight into the Leaver ways and of the fullness they bring to human existence. This, as well as other stories by Van Der Post, offers the reader a glimpse into one of the last Leaver cultures to survive into late 20th century, before ultimately succumbing to the Taker onslaught."
    Check out and/or Order A Story like the Wind from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Theory Of Everything by Ken Wilber has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Daniel McKinley...and Daniel has this to say about the book: "This book is in some ways a distillation of the ideas from several of Wilber's books, including "Sex, Ecology Spirituality" and others. He uses a different concept of "memes" to describe the evolution of human consciousness in an upward-spiralling continuum and argues that we should be striving for the health of the entire spiral, not just trying to raise everyone's consciousness level. But fundamentally, this book is about bringing together disparate disciplines to achieve a truly integrated, sustainable vision for the future. Before I read Ishmael, this was another one of those books that completely reshaped my thinking. If you like that experience of tweaking your mental processes, you should check this guy out."
    Check out and/or Order A Theory Of Everything from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Theory of Power by Jeff Vail has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jeff Vail...and Jeff has this to say about the book: "This book is the result of my journey into my own head, and into the world around me, inspired nearly 7 years ago by Daniel Quinn's "Ishmael". It draws on the fields of psychology, anthropology, economics, politics, sociology, physics and more, but will definitely strike a chord with fans of "Ishmael"."
    Check out and/or Order A Theory of Power from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Thousand Years of Nonlinear History by Manuel De Landa has been suggested by Ishmael Network member James McCaughan...and James has this to say about the book: "DeLanda traces the last millennium of history through three unique (to history) avenues; geology, biology, and linguistics, giving us a view of how the mechanisms of all three are very similar in their organization in relation to chaos theory. This is sometimes dense reading, but shows how evolution is not predictable. As Quinn points out in Ishmael, we are not the end of the engine of evolution."
    Check out and/or Order A Thousand Years of Nonlinear History from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • A Veiled Gazelle by Idries Shah has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Zachary Vogt...and Zachary has this to say about the book: "It's stories that represent the original knowledge that Quinn wants us to remember."

  • A Woman's History of the World by Rosalind Miles has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Rebecca Harrington...and Rebecca has this to say about the book: "Great starter book for learning about feminism."

  • A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L'Engle has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Laurie Sutton...and Laurie has this to say about the book: "This book and Madeleine L'Engle's other books (young adult, adult, fiction and nonfiction) have broadened my perspective immensely. I've read them and re-read them since I was 12, and learn more with each reading. She has a gift for encouraging readers to see and understand things in different ways. Many of her main characters are unique individuals who don't fit in with "Normal society," and their stories helped me to understand at an early age that being an "oddball" is better than being one of the sheep. Her books for young adults are a great way to introduce children and young people to ideas outside the mainstream. In addition, she is also a Christian, but of the rare sort that is open-minded about science, history, other religions, and new ideas. Her works, like those of Daniel Quinn, have changed the way I live and view the world. "A Wrinkle In Time" is a great book to start with, and you will want to read more!"
    Check out and/or Order A Wrinkle In Time from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Acts of Rebillion by Ward Churchill has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jennifer Sterling...and Jennifer has this to say about the book: "This is an intelligent and powerfully written collection of Ward Churchill's essays. It is an informative tribute to American Indian resistance, and expresses very clearly that one of the most important steps in saving the world has to be the survival of tribal peoples. Of particular interest are the essays, "The New Face of Liberation" and "I am Indigenist". I would definitely recommend anything by Ward Churchill."
    Check out and/or Order Acts of Rebillion from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Affluenza by John De Graaf et. al. has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Candice Zawoiski...and Candice has this to say about the book: "This book presents the essence of Taker culture, consumerism, materialism, and the unending pursuit of more, as a disease or epidemic. It takes an in-depth look at many of the problems created by consumerism that Quinn has explored in his books-isolation and the disappearance of community, not having enough time to enjoy life and spend time with loved ones because of having to work long hours to keep up with expenses, the meaninglessness and emptiness of a consumer lifestyle, the ever-growing gap between rich and poor, and the destruction of the environment. Also has some great cartoons on these themes distributed throughout the book."
    Check out and/or Order Affluenza from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • After the Apocalypse: The New Way by David Anderson has been suggested by Ishmael Network member David Anderson...and David has this to say about the book: "The book references Daniel Quinn's books extensively and takes his ideas to their logical conclusion. To live sustainably on Planet Earth humans must live as hunter gatherers in harmony with nature, or as Quinn says in the hands of the gods. In the Blogs and Chats the book analyzes our present situation concluding that the Apocalypse is inevitable; then tries to come up with elements of a contingency plan for sustainable human habitation on the planet, after the Apocalypse. Parts I and II, and the Epilogue are a novel that attempts to demnonstrate how the plan would be implementated, including pitfalls. Go to www.aftertheapocalypse.org for free download. "

  • Against Civilization: Readings and Reflections by John Zerzan has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Xavier Sonnerat...and Xavier has this to say about the book: "A great book assembling excerpts from the greatest books written against the institution of civilization. The comparisons between our way of life and tribal ways are particularly interesting."
    Check out and/or Order Against Civilization: Readings and Reflections from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.
