BOOK WORLD - October 17, 2010

Best Sellers

The poli / sci list continues to be long, with several new books (and one old one) popping on the chart ...

New books include those from conservative pundit Michael Savage, Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank (on the Glenn Beck phenomenon), liberal blogger Arianna Huffington and another Washington Post columnist, Eugene Robinson, with a look at the African American community.

And in the "old" camp, we have Reinhart & Rogoff's look at financial follies over the past 800 years ... it's a book that has been off and on the list over the past year with a clearly timeless message ...
