Three good new books on politics

1. Isaac William Martin, Rich People’s Movements: Grassroots Campaigns to Untax the One Percent.  He even covers Frank Chodorov.

2. Sumantra Bose, Transforming India: Challenges to the World’s Largest Democracy.  The first sentence of the last paragraph of the book is this: “In the post-1989 era, the people of India have progressively empowered regional(ist) parties and leaders.”

3. Avi Tuschman, Our Political Nature: The Evolutionary Origins of What Divides Us.  He traces differences in political views back to three underlying factors, namely attitudes toward tribalism, tolerance of inequality, and perceptions of human nature (competitive vs. cooperative).  Think of this book as the next step after Jonathan Haidt.
