Starship troopers by HeinleinA tale of citizenship and personal responsibility
Such a great question. I'd pick _The Hawk and the Dove Trilogy_ by Wilcock. Best book on leadership ever even though it's fiction.

Either "The Decline of the Secular University" by C. John Sommerville, which exlpains why secular philosophies as are orthodoxy in contemporary academia are not particularly relevant to the actual political issues of the day (bio-ethics, global jihad, sexual ethics, etc.).OR "Christianity and the Crisis of Cultures" by Pope Benedict XVI - which examines some of the fundamental ideas that undergird our democracy and Western Civilization generally, and shows how these ideas are based upon and rationally inseperable from Theistic belief (of some kind, of course, the Pope suggests Christianity in particular for obvious historical reasons).
