ARSENALSOF FOLLY by Richard Rhodes
Rewriting the Cold War with Mikhail Gorbachev as the hero.
War-Fix by Steve Olexa and David Axe
A moving graphic novel about going to Iraq as a journalist. Unblinking, sobering, thought-provoking.
Parker loves these Time Warp trio books.

In my case, I was the Neanderthal and my mother the Cro-Magnon.
HOODWINKED -- hideous animation, but kids loved it
The animation in this updating of the Red Riding Hood story is really hideous, and the flip attitude is grating, but the kids loved it. Go figure.
D.A. by Connie Willis
This was a very nice YA novella. I wish it had been full-length -- she's really good in this genre.

My only complaint is that when the character learns the meaning of the term "D.A.", she should learn something of its history.

A bracing Brin-like approach to competition and education.
