The Theory of the Leisure Class (Modern Library Classics)
Thorstein Veblen, Alan Wolfe
Stonewall: The Riots That Sparked the Gay Revolution - David Carter Carter wrote a history of queer people's 6 day struggle with the police for control of the gay ghetto in New York in 1969. A dense history, heavy with details and anecdotes gleaned from the author's seemingly tireless search for every interview and bit of coverage that even tangentially related to Stonewall. The book would have been a lot easier to follow and digest after editing, but it's so rich in resources that it's hard to fault Carter including everything he could find.
