(Redirected from Controversial book
This is a list of controversial non-fiction books aimed at the general reader which discuss controversial issues, or are (or were at the time of writing) controversial for other reasons. For controversial fictional books, see list of banned books.
The intention is to provide
- a reading list of the pivotal works, good or bad, in controversial subjects
- a list of books and authors that may be good candidates for new articles
Criteria for inclusion:
- This list is intended to be selective, not exhaustive.
- The standard for books written in the last 40 years is necessarily weaker than that for older books, as there is no way of knowing whether these books will be as highly regarded (or reviled) in the decades to come. Their topical nature makes them important, and so they should be included here.
- This list is alphabetical by topic, and books should be ordered by publication date within topics
