If you have any interest in the fight against totalitarian theocracy, then you must read A Road Unforeseen. I found it to be a thorough, well organized primer on Kurdistan, ISIS, and the self governing region known as Rojava. Meredith Tax is a phenomenal researcher, and makes this deeply complicated topic very readable. Still not convinced? THIS IS ABOUT WOMEN FIGHTING AN INSANE DEATH CULT.

The Russian Revolution is one of the defining events of modern history, and sci-fi author China MiƩville has turned its tumultuous, hopeful, and ultimately tragic build-up into a thrilling and fascinating page-turner.
