Orville Schell's 5 most important books

Orville Schell, dean of the journalism school at the University of California, Berkeley, named his five most important books for Newsweek.

The oldest title among the five:
The Peloponnesian War by Thucydides.

It's the story of the destruction of a city. It's really the first piece of war reporting.
Read about all five books.

--Marshal Zeringue
