She asked a dozen people who struggle with our culture's parameters and possibilities for three recommendations. I am well acquainted with one of them, and aware of most of the others. Their recommendations are worth perusing.
And just because I can, I'll offer my own three suggestions for reading for the season, one of which duplicates one that Green also received.
2. Thieves of State: Why Corruption Threatens Global Security by Sarah Chayes. On first sight, this might seem a book about the follies and crimes of the U.S. in Afghanistan. It is that, but that is not all. It is a deep examination of how sustainable social arrangements function and it is profoundly suggestive about the condition of our own polity. My discussion here.
3. Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson. Stevenson is a lawyer to the damned -- and much more. He demonstrates what a civil rights lawyer can accomplish, patiently building a case for more just application of law to the lives of his poor, largely Black, clients. And he is an institution builder, growing a law firm from nothing that is changing outcomes in the U.S. south and beyond. These days, he is building a National Lynching Memorial. If you want to meditate on actually doing something against hate, read this book.
