Political Bestsellers

Though the list is a bit shorter this week, it’s refreshing that some new titles have made the cut. Those include:

+ Dick Morris’s latest screed against the Obama administration (from the aptly titled Broadside Books, as he seems to made a career of doing just that).

+ HM King Abdullah’s take on the crisis in the Middle East, specifically the Israeli-Palestinian conundrum. Of course, this was written long before the ongoing strife and protests (both peaceful and violent) that have rocked the Arab world, including Jordan, over past weeks.
