What Books Could Be Used to Rebuild Civilisation?

One wing of the Long Now Foundation’s library aims to compile a collection of 3,500 books – books deemed most likely to “sustain or rebuild civilization.”

Other notable contributors include Long Now Foundation president Stewart Brand and board member and co-founder of Wired magazine Kevin Kelly. Below, see the first ten titles from each of these futurist’s lists, and further down, links to the full list of contributors’ selections so far.
