Trip Reading

Off to Ankara and Dubai this afternoon. Non-fiction reading:

On water: Blue Gold, by Maude Barlow and Tony Clarke; Water: A Natural History, by Alice Outwater (My ignorance on this critical issue is infinite.)

The Summer of 1787, by David Stewart. (The idealism and realpolitik behind the writing of the Constitution.)

The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil, by Phil Zimbardo. (Reflections on the famous-infamous Stanford prison experiment—effectively random citizens drawn from the streets of Palo Alto were abusing “prisoners” (other randomly selected Palo Altoans) within about 72 hours, and the experiment had to be cancelled.)
