Encounter Books has released its Spring-Summer 2009 catalogue, which previews more intellectually stimulating reading in the areas of social criticism, biography, history, politics, culture, public policy, religion, science, and education.  "I hope you will be as excited as I am about our forthcoming titles," Encounter publisher Roger Kimball writes at the catalogue's beginning.  "[W]e seek to promote serious debate about essential issues."

In The Road to Big Brother, Clark tells of his attempt to travel to London's famous Southend Pier without Britain's growing surveillance apparatus knowing where he had gone.  In From Poverty to Prosperity, Kling and Shulz show the huge differences in the standard of living across time and borders.  Muravchik's The Next Founders introduces us to many heroes in lands of anti-democratic fascism.

The catalogue also lists Encounter's past titles.

Encounter Books is an activity of Encounter for Culture and Education, a nonprofit group that is substantially supported by The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee.
