Between the upcoming presidential election and my recent reading of The Post-American World, I have found myself becoming obsessed with the desire to learn more about politics, economics, foreign affairs, etc. My problem is that even though I'm an Obama supporter, I don't necessarily want to read only the Democratic side of any topic. Nor am I interested in reading an Obama/Democrat slam-fest. With the bewildering array of political and current events books out there, I wondered where I could find more books like The Post-American World that don't obviously side with either party. Amazon has apparently heard my silent plea! From their Election Store:
Since not every political book is a red or a blue book, we've also prepared a list of "purple" books that includes journalistic accounts that present themselves as nonpartisan (even though they might be more critical of one party or another), as well as books that cross the usual party lines (even if they might be written by a member of one party or another).
Hooray!! Here is a link to that list: Purple Books List
Agree or disagree with the list as we will, it at least gives me a starting point. I'm off to the store with my list. . .
