I'm reading...

the new book The End and the Beginning by George Weigel. It's a good read. The first part is a fine analysis is the events leading up to the overturning of Communist rule in Eastern and central Europe in 1989.

This book was a birthday present from Jamie, and I am hugely enjoying it, carrying it around to read on the train, in supermarket queues, etc. Recommended.

If you like Weigel's style, try his Letters to a Young Catholic. It's a cross between a catechism and a travelogue, with plenty of English destinations, e.g., Oxford, Olde Cheshire Cheese, Brompton/London Oratory, etc.
