books and toys

Books and Toys, a great site (link via Ashwin) for free books and toys. A huge collection of downloadable English, Hindi and Marathi books and ideas for toys from day-today objects. An awesome initiative by Arvind Gupta and his colleagues.

TAKEOVER!, Students U.S.A mobilize for the 90's, documents from the the movement. The e-book (courtesy Mike) is about the student movement at University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 1989-90, against defense funded research and to defend abortion rights. In my opinion, should be required reading for all new students!
