Its a pretty broad subject. What kind of politics are you interested in? Law making, economics, historical subject? Are you liberal, conservative, a socialist? Do you want to understand our current economic crisis better? Try Richard D. Wolff, "capitalism hits the fan". or glen greenwald "With Liberty and Justice for Some: How the Law Is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful". Or this one: The Monster: How a Gang of Predatory Lenders and Wall Street Bankers Fleeced America--and Spawned a Global Crisis [bargain Price]

Michael W. Hudson

Good luck.

Family of secrets: the bush dynasty is a pretty good book if you want to understand how politics in dc work. If you want to learn about the economy then only get books by authors who predicted the 07 [excrement], like peter schiff and ron paul, I recently came across this book at amazon and had to buy it because the list price for a hardcover used was like 80 bucks but the kindle edition was 14.99. It was published in 2006 and predicts the 07 crisis. Even if you do not have a kindle you can still download it and read it on your comp with amazon's free cloud reader.

Two books that I've enjoyed reading are "Rule by Secrecy" by Jim Marrs; it's a book about how the New World Order was begun and how it will be carried out. It's kind of out there, but was still fun to read. And, "The Creature From Jekyll Island"...I forget who the author is, but it's a great read on how the Federal Reserve banking system got started back in 1913.

I just finished watching a great video called "Inside Job" It was produced and directed by a man named Charles Ferguson. This video explains the global financial crisis of 2008 like nothing I've ever seen before. I now understand what derivatives, CBO and all those other terms really mean. Please see this film if you can. I borrowed a copy from my local library.

Hey you do not speak out about What kind of politics are you interested in? Are you democratic,liberal, conservative, socialist or Creator-ism? Do you know which one is perfect to solve the present crisis like social ,economy ,security,want to understand our current economic crisis better?

"Rule by Secrecy" by Jim Marrs; it's a good book

In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir, by Dick Cheney and Liz Cheney

Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero, by Chris Matthews That's a worst political book.

Try that also

Im interested in politics but i dont know about alot of it. I was hoping someone could give me the name of a good book that could help me understand politics better

 

We have the same like, i suggest you start at the very beginning. To learn more and have comparisons why not go back first in the history of politics in different nations (or only at your country). I even made a blogs about it (political conservatism in particular) to share others what i learned.

I HIGHLY reccomend the book, "CAN MITT ROMNEY SERVE TWO MASTERS? The Mormon Church Versus The Office of the Presidency of the United States of America". Part I is about Mitt's insane beleifs (like he believes that he will become a literal God in his afterlife..seriously), and Part II tells the truth about his political record, vs the misinformation that comes from his rhetoric & campaign. It reads like a intense fiction novel .... but it's all documented facts. It's not a boring read...just the opposite. I give it 5 stars!

Not sure what exactly to suggest to someone who is just gaining interest in politics but I'd be more than happy to list some of the political authors I like:

 

Jesse Ventura (if you read his 1st book "I Ain't Got Time To Bleed" it's part political, part bio. I really like Jesse, I'm more liberal than he is on a lot of things but his heart is in the right place haha. His personal stories will keep you interested which will probably be good for someone just getting into politics. It's not just 300 pages of the state of the American economy LOL. "Don't Start The Revolution Without Me" is also part politics, part bio and is interesting though a couple stories are repeats. He's also written "American Conspiracies" and "63 Documents The Government Doesn't Want You To Know About" which are really good. His latest book is "Democrips And Rebloodicans" which I have but haven't gotten the chance to read yet.)

 

Michael Moore (His latest was a bio which was amazing, but he has also written political books like "Dude, Where's My Country?")

 

James Carville (Very good political mind. He just released a new book)

 

Al Franken (Comedian so his books are funny but also political. "Lies And The Lying Liars Who Tell Them" is about idiots like the FOX news people and Rush Limbaugh and "The Truth With Jokes" is about the Bush administration.)

 

There's so many others it's hard to name all of them lol. But these 4 are highly recommended. Hope this helps! PEACE!

There is no greater teacher than watching it. You get a book and then you become directed to think as the author. Actions speak louder than words. watch what people do. Listen to whether they live by the what if scenario or describe what is going on scenario. If they are always projecting about yesterday's mistakes and tomorrow's corrections they have no intentions of fixing anything that is out of balance. Just position themselves to be where the money flows through their regulations.

never talk politics at a party, you'll be pegged as a nerd. religion is off topic too. Just make stupid, shallow banter, the more meaningless, the better. Tell a good joke, but not racist or one that reveals your political leaning.

don't trust anyone at a party...let them guess about your smartness.

That's what I suggest. I would NEVER tell someone how to live their life. We walk this path alone, and make our own decisions, such is the unique greatness of America, land of the free, where freedom is burned into our character like birthright, infusing our very souls.
