One Book on Atheism I Should Read (read details!)

I am looking for one single book, perhaps a college-level read (not much higher), that explains the case for atheism. I'm not looking for any 'new atheist books', though I have enjoyed them -- especially Harris. I have read Bertrand Russell as well. I have a few atheist friends but do not want to talk to them about this as I am a Christian and don't want to give them the impression that I want to change them or judge them. I just want more exposure to it in a sincere and kind fashion without short bumper sticker like explanations. (BTW, I don't look at my friends as "Hey, here come my 'atheist' friends! But mainly here comes "Bob" and "Joe". I just don't think it is right to bug them about their positions or lack thereof. <--Not sure how to state that.) Thanks in advance for your book recommendation.

Around the world in 200 books

I'd like to read a book about each country's history, ideally one offering as comprehensive of a timeline as possible. My goal is to get a brief overview of the history of a region rather than a specific focus on any singularly important event. I'm looking for specific suggestions for any and all countries. Since that is a fairly wide net to cast, I'd settle for the best choices on the countries with the longest and most interesting histories and/or specifically interesting books. I have a Kindle, so bonus points for books available in that format.

Do you know Buenos Aires? Have you read something - a book, author, novel - that truly captured the city for you? We are taking our first trip to Buenos Aires in the next couple of months and I'm looking for books to read that are particularly Argentinian or somehow reveal aspects of the city, its history, people and/or culture that aren't covered in the Frommer's.
