    Suggestions for World History

    How about James Stobaugh W. History combined with Great Courses, some bios, and primary documents? That's my plan, anyway. I thought it seemed the most balanced. Great Courses options: Foundations of Western Civilization I & II; Utopia and Terror in the 20th cen.; Music as a Mirror of History; individual lectures from a variety of other courses. I have GCPlus, so I can pick and choose

    Which Dostoevsky book?

    Candide was made into an opera by Leonard Bernstein. Don Quixote is on my son's World Lit. list this coming year.

    Which Dostoevsky book?

    Thank you, Lori; I agree. My son has had struggles with depression, so I am very careful. Several on your list are already on mine. I've highlighted in bold those which are also on my list.

    Another Book Option: Camus or Kafka?

    Apparently, it's how Kafka felt about his own childhood. I think I will use Camus, with a Kafka short story.

    Which Dostoevsky book?

    Well, he chose C and P. I'm a little disappointed, as I actually think he'd prefer BK, with its philosophical bent. So, I hope he'll appreciate C & P. I think I will read BK.

    Which Dostoevsky book?

    I could let him read the synopsis and get his opinion. Usually, he prefer that I pick.
