Listed below you’ll find the books we’ve been reading in the seminars since they started in 2012. We add additional books every year, and therefore may not continue to read some of those listed below for seminar sessions, but every one of them will help contribute to the development of the critical consciousness we think is important for the future.


Additionally, those of us who are involved with The Centre on Critical Thinking are always reading our way through a variety of topics, from militarism to gender theory, from surveillance to environmental economics. For a peek into what we're currently raving about, check the box on the right hand side of this page - we'll try to update it regularly, or at least as often as we can find the time to tear ourselves away from the books themselves...

What we're reading now...

  • Michael J. Glennon's

National Security and Double Government (2015)


  • Zygmunt Bauman's

What Use is Sociology? (2013)
