Talk:The Unconquerable World
|WikiProject Books||(Rated Start-class)|
This is not an essay it is a concise summary that sticks closely to the books structure. I'm not adverse to someone who has read the book making it more concise and I will do this within the next week or so if no-one else does. With regard to its notability - if you go to the Jonathan Schell page you will see that it was one of the few of his books that did not have a separate wikipedia page. The author is well known in the field as can be seen from the links on this page.Szczels (talk) 17:13, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

I do think more books on Wikipedia need to include a summary/abstract by a third party and something on the books critical reception, or we might as well have links to Amazon! Szczels (talk) 10:03, 13 November 2009 (UTC)
The Wisdom of Crowds by James Suroweicki (2004)
Why does Schell not refer to Gene Sharp ?
The 3 volumes of ‘The Politics of Non-violent Action’ by Gene Sharp that was first published way back in 1973 is the first expression of this theory and it seems plain wierd that Schell does not refer to him. I need to check the book again to make sure. Szczels (talk) 21:47, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
