Library Tales: Interestingly Titled I

Here are just a few of the more interestingly titled books I've come across recently.

The Industrial Vagina : the political economy of the global sex trade

Thinking Like a Communist

When Skateboards Will Be Free : my reluctant political childhood 

More, Bacon, Neville
Showing the importance of punctuation, which I cannot help but read as, More bacon, Neville!

A dog's history of America : how our best friend explored, conquered, and settled a continent

Housewife or harlot : the place of women in French society 1870-1940

Stiffed : the betrayal of modern man

Life is not complete without shopping

Sexed Pistols : The gendered impacts of small arms & light weapons

The Communist Controversy in Washing [sic]
 Due to a damaged cover this title has occurred, it should read Washington, but some things are better by accident

Cows, Pigs, Wars, and Witches : the riddles of culture

The True History of Chocolate

Mao's War Against Nature

Honourable mention goes to : The Male Body by Susan Bordo that should probably come under a new category 'cover stories'. The book's spine is an eight inch ruler.

Thanks Don.
Good to receive news from Tayside. Not so far from my old stomping grounds. Will be keeping an eye on your blog.
