That is quite a list Elizabeth! Thanks.

I'll add one more: Buying the Night Flight by Georgie Ann Geyer. This is a memoir of foreign corresponding that covers the communist revolutions from Guatemala, Cuba, Chile, Argentina, Russia, Poland, and the Middle East. It has amazing insights into the mind set of commie leaders including Castro, Allende, Walesa, Prince Sihaunouk... It a very interesting read that covers a broad swath of history of the communist attempts to rule the hearts and minds of humans. There are some great bits about the mindset of these revolutionaries that reveal the reasons for their successes and failures.
