We've been thinking a lot about books this holiday season (see posts earlier this month), so let's keep that theme going on this Christmas Eve.
Fresh Air, the terrific NPR program, has an interesting book critic, Maureen Corrigan, who has worked up her Top Ten list this year. It includes some interesting titles, including Fordlandia, a history of Henry Ford's ill-fated attempt to build a worker paradise in Brazil.
We'd never heard of this Ford project and we haven't read the book, but from everything we've heard, it's an amazing story. For example, Corrigan mentions that Ford outlawed "sex dances" at Fordlandia, restricting the workers to waltzes and other more sober dance styles.
