Hey /lit/, as someone who lives in a shitty part of Asia, I often find myself alone in my admiration of Western ideals.
Most people I know think of colonialism and exploitation when they think of Europe, and they refuse to look any further than this. What books would you suggest to introduce an outsider/layman to Western culture? My go-to suggestion is usually just Thomas Paine's Rights of Man and some Wikipedia articles about things like the French Revolution to provide some historical context, but I was wondering if there are any other books that are more accessible and easy to follow.
