10795 Books for People Too Busy to Read (Morning Session)   

June 4: Dan Hunt will review The Case for Colonialism (2023) by Professor Bruce Gilley, Portland State University. The book follows Gilley's 2017 academic study suggesting that colonialism has gotten a bum rap by historians.

June 11: Course leader Jim Martin believes John Lukacs's Five Days in London, May, 1940 is timely as the war in Ukraine grinds on and support grows for a withdrawal of US military aid for Ukraine.

June 18: Fred Beier, Professor Emeritus (ret.) is betting on Grann's newest offering, The Wager: A Story of Shipwreck, Survival, Mutiny, and Murder to be deeply engaging book, dealing with the 1741 mutiny aboard the British ship, the Wager.

June 25: Lt Col Steve Birch (US Army, ret.) will offer commentary on Whatever It Is, I’m Against it: Resistance to Change in Higher Education, by Brian Rosenberg. The book couldn’t be more timely, considering daily headlines about declining enrollments, increasing tuition costs, and DEI policies.
