Human Events, the bizarrely titled American conservative magazine, has published a list of what its panel has voted "the ten most harmful books of the 19th and 20th centuries". The result is unintentionally hilarious. Apart from the inclusion of Mao's Little Red Book and the obviously and undeniably evil Mein Kampf, most of the books are remarkable in their un-scariness. What's actually scary is the idea that a bunch of people think that The Feminine Mystique, Origin of the Species, Margaret Mead's Coming of Age in Samoa and John Stuart Mill's On Liberty are as harmful as Hitler.
