BOOK WORLD - November 21, 2010

By Christopher Schoppa
Best Sellers

The streak of only nine hot poli/sci titles continues for a third week ...

The expected debut of George W. Bush's new memoir at the top spot, with no other real newcomers ... though Michael Lewis and the team of Johnson & Kwak have their books rejoin the list after many weeks. Likely thanks to the ever more controversial bank bailouts and TARP money, much in the news of late thanks to the midterm elections.
