The Revolutionary Reader

Unlike the political and economic theory reader, this one is aimed not at people with a focus on constitutional theory, but rather towards those with an interest in revolution. Would-be revolutionaries of all flavours would do well to read the books here. A number of the classic works from the other list have been repeated here for the convenience of students of revolution.

The Tipping Point
Malcolm Gladwell's excelent work on the epidemic spread of trends and ideas. Usually in the business section, it's a must-read for anyone planning a revolution.
Sun Tzu's the Art of War
A guidebook used by asian warriors for centuries, it still holds up with a lot of reccomendations good for both life and war.
Machiavelli: The Prince
The first, and quite possibly greatest, no-holds-barred look at how people can really get ahead in politics. His ideas were practical in his time, and most have remained so. Also an influence on my constitutional thinking and debates.
Walden; On the Duty of Civil Disobedience
There are other means of achieving social change beyond violent revolution, this book inspired such successfull uprisings as independance for India and the quest for black civil rights in America.
Two-in-one with one of the best personal essays on solitude in the English language.
Guerrilla Warfare
Che Guevarra's classic instruction book for those intrested in violent overthrow, and the sourcebook behing most of the Latin American marxist movements of this century.
