The 7 Books Every Democrat Should Read At Least Once In Their Life

Before we jump into this list of the books every Democrat should read, you should be aware that these books are not here to convert you away from your views or affirm them! They are simply books to broaden your view of US politics and provide you with either an understanding of the entire political sphere, what drives people to the left and right, or what can be gained or lost from the Democrats.

You might not agree with what is in all of them, but once you finish reading them (with an open mind), you’ll definitely have a greater understanding of the world, politics, and society as a whole.

Editor Note: Some of the books on this list are suggested by Republicans, some are suggested by Democrats.

#1 Extreme Government Makeover by Ken Miller

Many Democrats choose to work in Public Service. This book reveals the tips, strategies and hiding-in-plain-sight secrets for making government work better. The house of government is broken, and it needs a serious makeover from top to bottom. said Mr. Miller.

#2 The Liberal Hour by C. Calvin Mackenzie / Robert Weisbrot

[This] book discusses Washington and Executive/Congressional politicos as catalysts of change during the 60's decade. All striding to pass revolutionary legislation that still are considered crown jewel standards of then and now progressive American legislation to this very day.

#3 Dumping In Dixie: Race, Class and Environmental Quality by Robert Bullard

In working on my graduate thesis, this book really touched me -how racist white Southern Democrats and Big Corporations colluded to hurt the health of people of color across the southern states; for them to bear a disproportionate share of local and statewide environmental problems.

#4 Profiles in Courage by John F Kennedy

This Pulitzer Prize-winning book also touched my heart. Specific profiles of eight U.S. Senators who defied whims, demands of their own partisanship, decided to do what they felt was morally right for the people's benefit. All eight suffered severe rebukes and lost popularity because of their beliefs and actions taken.

#5 Bad Stories by Professor Steve Almond

Probably, the best read out there right now for Democrats is Steve Almond’s Bad Stories.

Democrats may remember Mr. Almond jiu jitsuing Hannity (as well as his unfortunate late sidekick, Alan Colmes) some years back after the author quit working at Boston College when Condi Rice was chosen to be the commencement speaker.

Mr. Almond also subsequently agitated Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh after the writer penned a New York Times Magazine op ed blasting the NFL’s handling of its concussion CTE crisis.

If Kurt Vonnegut thought like Joseph Campbell you might get something like Mr. Almond’s book.

Bad Stories is essential reading, not only for Democrats, but for all who desire to be citizens, as opposed to merely political consumers.

#6 Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

Although fiction, this book is a case study of how a society disintegrates when citizens are expected to be equal at all costs. Political correctness and wealth redistribution will eventually tear a country down. We see it happening in socialist countries around the world, yet Democratic politicians turn a blind eye to it. Or perhaps their real agenda is to selfishly better their positions at the expense of the general population they pretend to care about.

#7 A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn Ph.D.

A People's History of the United States by the late Professor Howard Zinn is essential reading for progressives and Democrats. Prof. Zinn describes U.S. history from the perspective of ordinary people instead of the heroes supposedly initiated reforms in a top-down manner. Instead, according to Prof. Zinn, it was ordinary people who bore the brunt of developing our nation while fighting hard-fought battles to expand the rights of workers, women, and minorities.
