Author: by Martha S. Jones
Published at: Basic Books (September 8, 2020)
The epic history of African American women’s pursuit of political power – and how it transformed America. In the standard story, the suffrage crusade began in Seneca Falls in 1848 and ended with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920. But this overwhelmingly white women’s movement did not win the vote for most black women.
Securing their rights required a movement of their own. In Vanguard, acclaimed historian Martha S. Jones offers a new history of African American women’s political lives in America. She recounts how they defied both racism and sexism to fight for the ballot, and how they wielded political power to secure the equality and dignity of all persons.
From the earliest days of the republic to the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act and beyond, Jones excavates the lives and work of black womenMaria Stewart, Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, Fannie Lou Hamer, and morewho were the vanguard of women’s rights, calling on America to realize its best ideals.
3. The Case for Trump
Author: by Victor Davis Hanson
Published at: Basic Books; Revised edition (March 17, 2020)
This New York Times bestselling Trump biography from a major American intellectual explains how a renegade businessman became one of the most successful – and necessary – presidents of all time. In The Case for Trump, award-winning historian and political commentator Victor Davis Hanson explains how a celebrity businessman with no political or military experience triumphed over sixteen well-qualified Republican rivals, a Democrat with a quarter-billion-dollar war chest, and a hostile media and Washington establishment to become president of the United States – and an extremely successful president.
Trump alone saw a political opportunity in defending the working people of America’s interior whom the coastal elite of both parties had come to scorn, Hanson argues. And Trump alone had the instincts and energy to pursue this opening to victory, dismantle a corrupt old order, and bring long-overdue policy changes at home and abroad.
We could not survive a series of presidencies as volatile as Trump’s. But after decades of drift, America needs the outsider Trump to do what normal politicians would not and could not do.

9. Why Women Have Better Sex Under Socialism: And Other Arguments for Economic Independence
Author: by Kristen R. Ghodsee
Published at: Bold Type Books; Reprint edition (March 3, 2020)
A spirited, deeply researched exploration of why capitalism is bad for women and how, when done right, socialism leads to economic independence, better labor conditions, better work-life balance and, yes, even better sex. In a witty, irreverent op-ed piece that went viral, Kristen Ghodsee argued that women had better sex under socialism.
The response was tremendous clearly she articulated something many women had sensed for years: the problem is with capitalism, not with us. Ghodsee, an acclaimed ethnographer and professor of Russian and East European Studies, spent years researching what happened to women in countries that transitioned from state socialism to capitalism.
She argues here that unregulated capitalism disproportionately harms women, and that we should learn from the past. By rejecting the bad and salvaging the good, we can adapt some socialist ideas to the 21st century and improve our lives. She tackles all aspects of a woman’s life – work, parenting, sex and relationships, citizenship, and leadership.

12. Sisters in Hate: American Women on the Front Lines of White Nationalism
Author: by Seyward Darby
Published at: Little, Brown and Company (July 21, 2020)
Shortlisted for the J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize*Journalist Seyward Darby’s “masterfully reported and incisive” (Nell Irvin Painter) expos pulls back the curtain on modern racial and political extremism in America telling the “eye-opening and unforgettable” (Ibram X. Kendi) account of three women immersed in the white nationalist movement.
After the election of Donald J. Trump, journalist Seyward Darby went looking for the women of the so-called “alt-right” – really just white nationalism with a new label. The mainstream media depicted the alt-right as a bastion of angry white men, but was it?
As women headlined resistance to the Trump administration’s bigotry and sexism, most notably at the Women’s Marches, Darby wanted to know why others were joining a movement espousing racism and anti-feminism. Who were these women, and what did their activism reveal about America’s past, present, and future?
Darby researched dozens of women across the country before settling on three – Corinna Olsen, Ayla Stewart, and Lana Lokteff. Each was born in 1979, and became a white nationalist in the post-9/11 era. Their respective stories of radicalization upend much of what we assume about women, politics, and political extremism.
Author: by Molly Ball
Published at: Henry Holt and Co.; Illustrated edition (May 5, 2020)
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A riveting inside account of the unprecedented rise to power and unmatched political legacy of the first woman Speaker of the House, by award-winning journalist Molly Ball Nancy Pelosi’s opposition to Donald Trump has made her an icon of the Resistance, featured in viral memes clapping sardonically at the president or ripping up his State of the Union address.
But the real Nancy Pelosi is neither the shrill partisan featured in thousands of attack ads nor the cautious corporatist reviled by the far left. She’s the rare politician who still knows how to get big things donea master of legislative power whose policy accomplishments have touched millions of American lives, from providing universal access to health care to reforming Wall Street to allowing gay people to serve openly in the military.
She’s done it all at a time of historic polarization and gridlock, despite being routinely underestimated by allies and opponents alike. Ball’s nuanced, page-turning portrait takes readers inside Pelosi’s life and times, from her roots in urban Baltimore to her formative years as a party activist and fundraiser, from the fractious politics of San Francisco to high-stakes congressional negotiations with multiple presidents.
14. Right For A Reason Life, Liberty, and a Crapload of Common Sense: Life, Liberty, and a Crapload of Common Sense
Author: by Miriam Weaver
Published at: Independently published (October 30, 2014)
It’s time for a real, snarktastic, humor-filled look at what makes conservatism right. We conservatives have truth and rationality and logic on our side. We just need to remind ourselves why we are right, and we need that reminder delivered in a way that’s not a lecture, not a history lesson, and not a complicated political diatribe.
If you think all conservatives are old white dudes, think again. Meet the Chicks on the Right (if you haven’t already). Everyone loves to tell them they’re wrong.Everyone. Liberals say they’re wrong because, well, they’re conservative. Conservatives tell them they’re wrong because they are not conservative enough.
Or because they’re too conservative. Or because they’re the wrong kind of conservative. With all the blame flying around, it’s easy to lose sight of one important thing:They think like you.And they are right. It’s right to revere the Constitution.
It’s right to value personal responsibility, economic liberty, and free enterprise. It’s right to think that political correctness is crap, and it’s right to call out the mainstream media for bias. And it’s right to laugh at the so-called War on Women and to stand up for the unborn.
15. Boots on the Ground: A Grassroots Tale of Neighbors Stepping Up & Into Pete Buttigieg's Historic Presidential Run
Author: by Lisa Fleishman
Published at: Nyemaster Goode PC (February 12, 2021)
When a gay, Millennial, Rhodes Scholar, veteran Mayor announced he was running for President of the United States with no money or widespread name recognition, a ragtag group of newly-minted volunteers in rural Iowa stepped up to a challenge: to fuel a political cause of bringing civility and truth to the process and deliver on the improbable, a historic caucus win.
The candidate: Pete Buttigieg. The volunteers: Republicans, Democrats, and Independent voters representative of all corners of the Hawkeye State. Boots on the Ground is the grassroots tale of what campaigning looked like and felt like from the ground as all eyes turned on Iowa for the first Presidential caucus during a particularly contentious season.
The lessons we learned from our shared experience can be applied to any cause, large or small. External or internal, really. With fire in our bellies and hope in our hearts, we made the impossible a reality. While pundits and prognosticators opined from on high, the anonymous regular nobodies in the arena rolled up their sleeves and got to work to change the world, bit by bit, neighborhood by neighborhood.
