At our June meeting we discussed Mohsen’s selection:
“ASSASSINATION” by Miles Hudson, first published in 2000
Mohsen provides the following information about his selection
I thought It would be best to quote the book’s own back-page description of the book.
The author Miles Hudson examines a series of political assassinations together with their causes and repercussions to establish together just how effective assassination is as a political tool. He asks to what extent the course of history can be changed by individuals. In questioning the practice of demonizing political leaders rather than the careful analysis of complex and long-standing situations, he establishes whether murder simply produces a martyr to the cause.
“Can Assassination change the course of history?”
There will be no homework, Though I expect our own individual emotions to kick in, I hope we all read the 256 page book and discuss the book’s content from the author’s perspectives, thus enabling our book club panel to judge and jury-cate the book and its author.
