The Wealth of Nations.

Everybody quotes but nobody has read it.

I read it. Long time ago, but read it. Was probably the only econ student that did.

Here are a few nonfiction titles I've enjoyed reading over the years. They are all in public domain and freely available on the Internet. None of them has anything directly to do with modern politics. They are all short except the books by Dana and Thoreau, and you can find abridged versions of these two if you look for them. You may want to find a modernized version of Bacon's Essays -- the Elizabethan spelling can get a little ponderous at times.

Enchiridion of Epictetus
Meditations of Marcus Aureleus
Gallic Wars of Julius Caesar
Essays of Sir Francis Bacon
Walden by Henry David Thoreau
Hydriotaphia, or Urn Burial by Sir Thomas Browne
A Confession by Leo Tolstoy
Two Years Before the Mast by Richard Henry Dana Jr.

I know this doesnt fit your parameters but Unintended Consequences by John Ross is worth reading, just get past the first of it. pm me if you need an ebook link.

I agree! That is a great book, with excellent 20th Century gun law history.
