I'm looking for recommendations for a novel for junior Social Studies
classes to replace one they are currently using, "Ishmael," by Daniel
Quinn.  The teachers are tired of teaching the book and want to find one
that explores similar themes and challenges students to "think outside
the box"...issues of globalization, questioning the Western way of life
and its impact on the world around us, examining our definition of what
constitutes progress. The goal is to stimulate students to look at
history and Western civilization in a different light.

Thanks for your suggestions.
