On our fourth trip through the Dewey Centuries, we’re focusing on the 300s—where under the big umbrella of social sciences, we find books on economics, education and ethnic studies, constitutional law, governments and urban planning. In this recommended list of 75 titles, you’ll find both classical works such as More’s Utopia and Marx’s Communist Manifesto and contemporary revelatory landmark works of narrative nonfiction including Boo’s Behind the Beautiful Forevers and Kozol’s Amazing Grace. Which backlist titles are most popular in your library? Do they include Eichenwald’s Conspiracy of Fools, Capote’s In Cold Blood and Fink’s Five Days at Memorial? Please share as we’d welcome an opportunity to hear about your community’s reading interests.
