I'm current;y looking for books to ask for for Xmas on a variety of subjects and I thought this would be a great place to ask!
I visit ATS everyday and have a variety of interests; 9/11 Ancient Conspiracies, Spiritualism, Astral travelling, Political Consipracies, Secret Societies, Aliens/Ufos, Black Projects - Montauk etc.

I was also thinking that this could be a thread for all of us to use when looking for a new read.

I'll put forward three books that I highly recommend.

Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-Up of 9/11 by Barrie Zwicker

Chariots of the Gods : Was God An Astronaut? by Erich von Däniken

The Red Book: Liber Novus by C. G. Jung

-As an earlier posted suggested, Atlas Shrugged (Ayn Rand) is excellent. Her 'The Fountainhead' is nearly as good. I am not familiar with her other writings.
-Noam Chomsky's "Hegemony or Survival" and "Failed States" discuss numerous American political abuses in foreign countries, such as their interference in Central America
-Howard Zinn's "A People's History of the United States" I've plugged this one on ATS so often I could probably be confused with the author, but sadly he died earlier this year. A great historical read, covering many aspects of American history from Columbus up to the time the book was written (which was unfortunately a year or two before 9/11, so his perspective on that is not included)
-Michael Crichton's "State of Fear", while a work of fiction, shows some of the reasons why global warming is a bogus theory, and even if you don't agree with that, it's still a good thriller

I have many others on my shelf that I haven't had time to read yet, but those ones I have read and would think most ATS members or like-minded people would enjoy

Although I am sure many ATSers will already have read them, simply
Hidden Agendas by John Pilger
Great War for Civilisation Robert Fisk

A book that brings up a few questions:
The Forge of God - Greg Bear

I know you asked for books but could I suggest this instead

I just watched it and it reminded me again what a truly visionary man he was...
Also his birthday is in December so it would be apt

I haven't read that one, but I read his "The Way" trilogy and that was excellent. A good read if you are into science fiction, particularly transhumanism.

Sometimes the classics are the best...
1. George Orwell's 1984 (it's amazing how many people haven't read that one)
2. Animal Farm (ok maybe only if you dropped out of secondary school, but still a good read)
3. Brave New World (although I liked it, not as much as the above, it is potentially a more accurate vision, of our long-term, EU-future than 1984 is)

Non Classics...
4. The Great European Rip-Off (all about why the EU is corrupt, and how it is leading us towards dictatorship)
5. Terminate With Extreme Prejudice: How assassinations-political murder historically fails far more times than it succeeedes, and how even when it succeeds, the ways it backfires on the killers are far more numerous than the ways it helps them.
6. Reefer Men: How to smuggle a billion dollar, cargo ship of weed into the US; kinda explains why prohibition doesn't work, and didn't even back in the 70's, 80's & 90's

For the people you know who believe every conspiracy that gets promoted on the internet AND for all the debunkers who meet the mentality everyday:

Voodoo History by David Aaronovitch

It's not about the individual conspiracies, it's about how they are started and who and why people believe in them.

Do ATS non-believers celebrate Christmas? If you can't keep Christ in Christmas you shouldn't.

Anything by Jim Marrs. A good starting point would be Rule by Secrecy which I like in large part due to its scope and variety and extensive bibliography which provides a great platform for further research.

Anything by Robert Anton Wilson. A much under appreciated genius whom I believe will eventually be considered as the Mark Twain of this era. Or ought to be. The Illuminatus Trilogy would be a good place to start.

Umberto Eco's Foucault's Pendulum. Fiction, and runs the gamut of topics from Secret Societies to conspiracies and the occult. You can really lose yourself in this one.

If you don't mind spending a little more, Tuper Saussy's Rulers of Evil is a well researched and disturbing non-fiction look at how we've arrived where we are, at least in his theory. Tupper died a few years ago, before his latest book, "Gods for the Godless" could be released. I'm still holding out hope someone will finish it and get it into release.

And a classic: The Creature from Jeckyll Island about the Federal Reserve. Should be required reading in schools.

There's a reasonable mix of fiction and non-fiction. Hope that helps.
