BOOK WORLD - October 31, 2010
This week we have a Perfect 10 list of poli/sci titles to reflect on ...
Michael Lewis's "The Big Short" moves strongly up the ranks (and returns to the general nonfiction bestseller list for the first time since August).

... and the only new book to hit the list is by Stanley Kurtz, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, with another attempt to paint the president as a socialist.
