I've been keeping and posting a list of books by Kossacks for a couple years now.  It has grown so large I needed to split it into two parts to stay within the diary length limits.  To be included on the list below, the authors had to meet the following criteria:

  • active kossacks: the author must be a registered user who must have posted a comment or diary within the past six months (or so)
  • books in print: the book must be currently in print and available from a retailer
  • no self published works: sometimes it is hard for me to determine which books are self-published, but I've made my best effort

The most recent version of the second part of the list, with all the out-of-print books and self-published books and books by former kossacks and books by relatives of kossacks can be found here.

Special shoutout to the new addition to the list: Rachel Vogelsang.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
