- For Beginners
This breezy overview of American political issues presents itself as a nonpartisan cheat sheet for citizens who don’t pay much attention to politics. Consultant Jessamyn Conrad mostly delivers on that promise. For each topic, such as health care or trade, she describes a bit of its history and then delves into a discussion. The book leans heavily on debates and controversies from the George W. Bush era, however; the author does not mention Donald Trump’s trade wars, the sharp political divides of recent years and other current events. Still, this primer offers a solid grounding in a variety of hot topics.
