though not in the NADC(I'm a diplomat) I love books.
My favorite is The Great Gatsby
In Dubious Battle
by John Steinbeck
This covers a workers strike in the apple orchards of California. The main character is a recently turned Communist that is sent to help organize the strikers, with him is a more seasoned man who knows how to control a crowd. In Dubious Battle contains many of the same themes as the rest of Steinbecks works( ex. rich vs poor). This book won Steinbeck a noble prize in Lit I believe and I highly recommend it.
