Maybe there should be different reading lists depending on the 
geographical and cultural background of the reader.  For anyone in North 
America or Europe, _A History of the Modern Middle East_ by William L. 
Cleveland.  That sort of thing.

But really, students should be required to learn at least one 
non-Indo-European language, including a one-year immersion course taken 
abroad... preferably in early adolescence.
