The Theory of the Leisure Class (Modern Library Classics)
Thorstein Veblen, Alan Wolfe
Baby Catcher: Chronicles of a Modern Midwife - Peggy Vincent The story of one woman's time spent as a nurse and as a midwife. Vincent has an engaging, friendly voice; I felt like we were friends within a chapter. The ways of thinking about and serving pregnant women have changed a huge amount since the 1960s, and Vincent documents it all from the front-line. The stories she tells are moving and sometimes hilarious, and the history she documents is fascinating.
