Currently Reading: War! What Is It Good For? By Ian Morris

I have approximately eighty more pages to go and I must say I have enjoyed this book very much. Thus far, I must say that I am slightly disappointed in understanding how productive war has made us richer. After having just read Piketty with all of his statistics, I wish Morris had these statistics included to make his point much stronger. I am not saying that I disagree with him, I would at this point in the book liked to have seen this point made much more clearly. Maybe the statistics were not there for him to justify this point. I am interested in doing more syntopical reading on this and with limited time, I am including a poll to see which book or books I should read next.
