Best books of the 0's
About now lots of people will be contemplating the fin de la décennie and, among other things, producing their best books of the decade lists. We don't intend to come up with a long list, as for every one that you put on a list there are 2 or 3 equally deserving.
However, the most important book of the decade in our opinion, as it deals with a subject that is going to be with us for at least the whole of the coming decade, is Lawrence Wright's The Looming Tower on the history of Islamic terrorism.
Otherwise we prefer to acknowledge the top upmarket books on the subjects that we concentrate on, and will post a list of these within the next few days.
