A Haul

I ventured out this afternoon to pick up a few gifts at Half Price and found myself a few volumes including the second installment in Simon Callow's portrait of Orson Welles as well as Imagined Communities (a book Joel has touted for over a decade now) by Bennedict Anderson and a bio of Khrushchev which I believe Roger read last spring.

Imagined Communities is crucial to understanding nationalism and identity politics. It had a significant impact on historians when it came out. It's not perfect, but it's worth the read.
