18 Best Political Books of All Time

(Updated 2021) Our goal was to create the best list of Political books on the internet.
To remain objective and unbiased, we looked at the 6 most popular“best Political books" articles online (we chose 6 because anything more than that diluted our quality).

Our rationale was simple: If a book only appears in one article, it’s probably just the journalist’s opinion, but if it appears in two or more, it’s probably worth checking out!
Below you’ll find which books made the cut 😊
