Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman by Robert K. Massie|
The most important reason I recommend is not to limit ourselves in American or British literature or novels but also the rest of the world. English is a bridge to the rest of the world, to the knowledge of the disciples we are interested in, etc.
I read this book last year. In this book, Massie painted the Catherine with the historic dropback of Prussia, Poland, English, Russia, etc. along with anecdotes.
Though there are books, which are labelled as literature features, the black lives, Americans can hardly redeem themselves. As Mr. Robert Massie pointed out in this book of his many American Presidents were slaves owners.
Today, the images of those Presidents are honored on the US currency. For example, George Washington is an example. Could anyone imagine if Hilter would be honored on German Marks, or Euros? American politicans never ever lead their own people do the soul-searching like the German government does. On the contrary, the main stream of the white make ode to the slave owners, perpetrators of gen ecides to native Americans.
Racism is engrained in the American society as Rev. Wright denounces. Like To Kill a Mockingbird, history repeats. A few years ago, in St. Louis, an unarmed black teen was killed by a white police who is scot free with the verdict of the jury who almost all white except for one black.
