Our favorite political authors range from Machiavelli to Woodward and Bernstein.
Summer reading always meant fiction, and often trashy fiction — the kind of books you'd buy at the airport to read on the beach and leave in your hotel room. But in this extensive presidential campaign season, books about politics are selling well, and fast, according to Dermot McEvoy, a senior editor of Publishers Weekly.
As McEvoy reports in his article, "Want Political Truth? Buy a Book", and discusses on Talk of the Nation, the latest crop of political books is issue-focused, with just a few political biographies thrown into the mix.
If your tastes run more toward the political classics, here's a list of some of our favorite books of all time.
