Overview

The Best American Political Writing 2003 preserves the most incisive, controversial, and entertaining writing about the notable events and people of 2002. In a year engulfed in political controversy, from President Bush's plans for a preemptive war on Iraq to the Enron and Adelphia scandals, American politics provided no shortage of fodder for debate. Gathering from the nation's leading publications including the New York Times, Washington Post, The Weekly Standard, Foreign Affairs, Vanity Fair, and Slate.com, as well as the latest books by Ralph Nader, Bob Woodward, and Michael Moore, editor Royce Flippin culls the best writing on the year's most talked-about topics. In a year that saw Karl Rove engineer the decisive drubbing of the Democrats in the 2002 midterm elections, as well as a continuing debate over the controversial Bush tax cuts and the Supreme Court's ruling on affirmative action, American critics produced some of the most passionate, disparate, and controversial writing in decades, the best of which is collected in this volume.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This fine collection presents articles culled from a variety of sources, including magazines (both online and print), newspapers, journals, and books. Flippin (Best American Political Writing 2002) has selected works that reflect liberal (e.g., Mark Green, Michael Moore, Ralph Nader, and Anna Quindlen), conservative (e.g., Pat Buchanan, William Kristol, John McWhorter, and William Raspberry), and moderate (e.g., E.J. Dionne, James Fallows, and Fareed Zakaria) political views. Helpful editor's notes precede each article and provide a context for what follows. The book is divided into five sections, each dealing with a broad topic, such as the politics of the Bush era, marching to war, and America and the world. While not necessarily the "best" political writing-always a rather pretentious assertion-these are clearly among the better, more thought-provoking, absorbing, and discussion-inducing articles that this reviewer has come across this year. Recommended for public libraries, especially those that do not subscribe to periodicals of diverse political perspectives.-Thomas J. Baldino, Wilkes Univ., Wilkes-Barre, PA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
