All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation
Rebecca Traister
The Windup Girl - Paolo Bacigalupi A very well thought out and well written tale about a thoroughly nasty future Thailand. In a post oil world subject to waves of plague, bio terrorism and just plain negligent design spawned by gene hackers - hordes of desperate people in a city on the edge of failure waste and destroy the last of their precious resources by fighting each other like rats drowning in a bucket. Meanwhile the eponymous Windup Girl - a genetically engineered companion abandoned in the mess by a Japanese corporate executive who can't be bothered to pay the fare to take her with him when he goes home - struggles to survive among people who don't consider her human. Not that they are particularly nice to the people they consider human either.
