You Can't Read This Book, Nick Cohen

Why would anyone write a book about censorship these days?  The Berlin Wall is down and the internet is up.  Liberal democracy is the "end of history", and mobs in Cairo and Tripoli have brought down decades-old dictatorships using nothing more than Blackberries and Twitter.

The Authoritarians, Bob Altemeyer

This is a very interesting and informative little book about the authoritarian personality.  Its author, an American psychology professor, has made it available free on the internet.
