Clandestines: The Pirate Journals of an Irish Exile - Ramor Ryan I came to this book expecting your usual radical-duder-goes-traveling-and-writes-about-it book. Hopped trains, romance in late coffee-fueled nights, a few protests, narcissism, etc. I was so excited to find this book wasn't, was more. While the book is about Ramor's travels, he doesn't feel like to focal point, rather the places he visits (and their politcal history) and the revolutionary movements he experiences while there. It's very informative, but much more palatable than a straight-up history book.
