Ten-Minute History of the World
(from a Zoroastrian Perspective)
and: Queen Guinevere's Rules
and: Democracy Is Not Impossible

These started as talks given extemporaneously to human-rights groups. The Ten-Minute History is an attempt to answer the question as to whether things are really better or worse than in the past, whether they will ultimately get better, whether there is point in our struggle—what the curve of history is.

Queen Guinevere's Rules are much simpler: they are a very friendly substitute for such structures as Robert's Rules of Order in running meetings such as those of Amnesty groups.

As with Think Like a Mother, proceeds will go to Amnesty International.
