Favorite Book Cover of the year

Its the time of the year when yearly favorites come out. I like to indulge in this game once in a while, but most of the time it is hard to play favorites. However, this year a cover of one of the books I have been reading stands out above all the rest I have come across: The Captive Mind by Czeslaw Milosz. I am afraid I could not find a better picture on the internet and will have to click my own copy once I get home.
The book attempts to explain why Eastern Intellectuals collaborated with the Russian/Stalinist regime and attempts to explain the thought process that went behind their cooperation. Written from an internal perspective, unlike Orwell’s 1984, or even Koestler’s Darkness at Noon which offered an external criticism of socialism, The captive mind is more an explanation than a critique.
