Thanks to Mike Macfeat for this excellent book suggestion.

Aside: The origin of the word boycott comes from "Capt. Charles C. Boycott."

"Captain Charles Cunningham Boycott was a British land agent whose ostracism by his local community in Ireland as part of a campaign for agrarian tenants' rights in 1880 gave the English language the verb to boycott, meaning 'to ostracise'."
