Gould’s Book Arcade

The Newtown area of Sydney is full of energy from the university students that spill into the streets. I saw several curious shops and book stores that are virtually extinct in the Los Angeles area.

The first one that caught my eyes was this Gould’s Book Arcade.

For some reason this 1990’s book caught my eyes and I imported back to Los Angeles. It’s a great read. Mr. William Echikson gave me a comprehensive overview of the history and conditions that led to the communist collapse in that region. I wish I had done it 26 years ago and I would have wanted to visit Eastern Europe much earlier.

If you have a book to recommend for someone trying to catch up on modern history of that region so that I might enjoy a trip there in the near future, please drop me a line.

Thanks
