Can you give some examples of the kind of books that you have in mind?

A mix between classics and modern authors which offer a sober, scholarly analysis of their subject matter. If that goes well, maybe try a few of the more partisan or divisive titles. Perhaps even a textbook -- sure, it's disputable how much that is "book club" territory, but then again not all of us are familiar with the theoretical foundations of some fields of interest.

For starters, I was thinking of nominating On Liberty by J.S.Mill, Economy and Society by Max Weber, and Francis Fukuyama with either The Origins of Political Order or The End of History and the Last Man. Of course, suggestions are welcome, and if people think these examples are too basic and that "everybody" can be assumed to have read these, feel free to give your own examples.
