Which books will change the world?

Which books changed the world? We have tried to answer that question in recent weeks. We read books that inspired protests or helped us understand the world better. Books that influenced world leaders or books that shaped our culture. One big question remains: which books will change the world?

In this episode we discuss what we learned about the power of literature in this nine-part series. We investigate how great the influence of books is and will be in the future. And we selected four relatively new books that have the potential to change the world. This is the ninth and final installment of a series about books that change the world.

Books we discussed this episode:

  • Ta-Nehisi Coates – Between the World and Me
  • Geert Buelens – What we already knew then: The forgotten green history of 1972
  • Margaret Atwood – The Handmaid’s Tale
  • Aleksandr Dugin – Foundations of Geopolitics

This is the final installment of a nine-part series about books that changed the world.
