Politics in the Stacks

Yesterday was primary day in Michigan. We have a lot of books about politics and elections; the kind of books you would expect to use to write a political science paper. But we also have books by politicians which are, perhaps, more inspiriational than historical. Three examples are: “Faith of my Fathers” by John McCain, “Living History” by Hillary Clinton, and “Dreams from my Father” by Barack Obama. Of course our budget, and finite shelf space, does not allow us to buy everything, so be sure to try MEL (Michigan Electronic Library) or ILL (interlibrary loan) for the things you want and we don’t have. Politicians are prolific writers!
