A Listmania! list by "manco_78"
 
A People's History of the United States: From 1492 to the Present
1.  A People's History of the United States: From 1492 to the Present by Howard Zinn
The list author says:
  "Well why mess about to start with? The History of the United State that the United States doesn't want you to read. Hit the scene in 1980, Second Edition unlikely to please any Presidents thereafter."

The Communist Manifesto (Classics)
2.  The Communist Manifesto (Classics) by Karl Marx
The list author says:
  "You can't tamper with a classic, and most certainly not with one as surprisingly accesible to the learner leftie as this. Not that it's halted 150 plus years of people's trying, mind."
Used & New from: £0.01

No Logo: No Space. No Choice. No Jobs
3.  No Logo: No Space. No Choice. No Jobs by Naomi Klein
The list author says:
  "A book that leaves the ''Brand'' phenomena in tatters; whilst anti-globalisation protestors tear down corporation buildings, Klein tears out their still beating hearts. An absolute piledriver."

Homage to Catalonia (Penguin Modern Classics)
4.  Homage to Catalonia (Penguin Modern Classics) by George Orwell
The list author says:
  "Yeah, Animal Farm and 1984 sure are incredible. But for a compellingly wretched insight into the utter hopelessness of war, Orwell's first hand account of the Spanish civil war is hard to beat."
£6.99   Used & New from: £2.35
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (94 customer reviews)

The Bang-Bang Club: Snapshots from a Hidden War
5.  The Bang-Bang Club: Snapshots from a Hidden War by Greg Marinovich
The list author says:
  "Substitute Franco's Spain for Apartheid South Africa, volunteer fighters for war photographers, and this is as close as anyone has come to a latter-day account worthy of Orwell. A hidden gem."
£6.29   Used & New from: £0.01

The State We're In: (Revised Edition): Why Britain Is in Crisis and How to Overcome It
6.  The State We're In: (Revised Edition): Why Britain Is in Crisis and How to Overcome It by Will Hutton
The list author says:
  "No amount of spin will pull the wool back over your eyes after this one. The contemporary Britain that Blair thought he'd buried with his principles."

Rogue States: The Rule of Force in World Affairs
7.  Rogue States: The Rule of Force in World Affairs by Noam Chomsky
The list author says:
  "So many offerings, which one to choose? As good a place as any to start with Chomsky. The alphabet of Western war crimes, and unfortunately for the perpetrators printed in the English tongue to boot."
£10.34   Used & New from: £0.01
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (14 customer reviews)

Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media
8.  Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media by Noam Chomsky
The list author says:
  "The genetics of media collusion in, camouflage and validation of State activities outlined amply above. A must for anyone who thinks what they see is what they get."
£7.69   Used & New from: £2.89
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews)

Hidden Agendas
9.  Hidden Agendas by John Pilger
The list author says:
  "Whilst Chomsky et al are the cartographers uncovering the hidden world map, Pilger is the tour guide here walking you through it. An investigative hack of supreme experience and talent."
£8.65   Used & New from: £0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (29 customer reviews)

On Liberty and Other Essays (Oxford World's Classics)
10.  On Liberty and Other Essays (Oxford World's Classics) by John Stuart Mill
The list author says:
  "Mill's Utilitarianism is his most important work. But when those nice folks at OUP serve up three other groundbreaking Essays to boot, you don't hang about waiting for a woman's right to vote."

The Social Contract (Classics)
11.  The Social Contract (Classics) by Jean Jacque Rousseau
The list author says:
  "''Man was born free, and he is everywhere in chains'' Till anyone again lands as powerful a literary knockout as that with their first punch, Rousseau's misunderstood masterpiece will just have to do."

Lord of the Flies
12.  Lord of the Flies by William Golding

Rage Against The Machine - The Battle Of Mexico City [DVD]
13.  Rage Against The Machine - The Battle Of Mexico City [DVD] DVD ~ Noam Chomsky
The list author says:
  "Ok, so not a book. But what the hey, even if you don't like RATM (which you really should, though) the special features stand alone. I mean, you gotta be good live to have Chomsky as support act."

Deschooling Society (Open Forum)

Captive State: The Corporate Takeover of Britain
15.  Captive State: The Corporate Takeover of Britain by George Monbiot

Companero: The Life and Death of Che Guevara
16.  Companero: The Life and Death of Che Guevara by Jorge Castaneda
The list author says:
  "Cuts through the cr/\p that invariably surrounds this wonderful individual. Beautiful account by a close friend; a compulsory read for every suburban revolutionary with Ché t-shirt tucked into Levi's."
£7.99   Used & New from: £0.01
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

The Trial of Henry Kissinger
17.  The Trial of Henry Kissinger by Christopher Hitchens
The list author says:
  "Woah! Truly astonishing stuff. Countless other books, some even listed here, capture amply the inherent hypocrisy of the Dictatorship of the West. None lend so personal an angle as this though."
Used & New from: £2.88

Animal Farm: A Fairy Story
18.  Animal Farm: A Fairy Story by George Orwell
The list author says:
  "Homage to Catalunya is my own favourite Orwell, but that's kinda like choosing your favourite child; pointless. Can't say anything that already hasn't been. Animals know so much."

The Hand of God: The Life of Diego Maradona
19.  The Hand of God: The Life of Diego Maradona by Jimmy Burns
The list author says:
  "Unpolitical? Perhaps, though you'd be surprised at a passage or ten. Overall though, an astonishing insight into the devastatingly corrupt agents lurking wherever God-given genius rears its head."
Used & New from: £0.01

You Are Being Lied To: The Disinformation Guide to Media Distortion, Historical Whitewashes and Cultural Myths
20.  You Are Being Lied To: The Disinformation Guide to Media Distortion, Historical Whitewashes and Cultural Myths by Kick
The list author says:
  "Oh yes you are, you know. A veritable who's who of dissidence, over 400 pages. Hard to digest, granted, but not half as hard as swallowing half the nonsense the book aims to expose."
Used & New from: £0.01
