Books I’ve Read in 2010

Following Younghusband‘s and Mark‘s posts, here are the books that I read in the past year:



Fiction (Not Reviewed)

Non-Fiction (Not Reviewed)

In Progress

Three Plugs

The stand-out of these is The Generalissimo’s Son, by Jay Taylor, about Chiang Ching-kuo. Ching-kuo inherited the supreme leadership of the Republic of China on Taiwan from his father, and lead the island to democracy. He is perhaps one of only three leaders (along with Kemal Ataturk and Ruhollah Khomenei) to have effectively used Terror to destroy an indigenous Communist Party. He was a Leninst who created a government of, by, and for the people.
