Overview

Like the previous five editions of this highly regarded anthology, The Best American Political Writing 2007 draws on a wide variety of publications and political viewpoints to present the year's most insightful and entertaining articles on the current political scene, including coverage of the 2006 elections, America's continuing struggles in Iraq and Afghanistan, and profiles of Hillary Clinton, John McCain, John Edwards, and other presidential hopefuls. Selections include Seymour Hersh's ongoing investigation into America's designs on Iran, Carl Cannon on what happens when presidents lie, Matt Taibbi's portrait of the worst Congress in history, Nobel prize–winning economist Daniel Kahneman on why hawks win most foreign-policy arguments, and Thomas Friedman’s look at how America can spearhead the environmental movement for a cleaner planet—plus 20 other groundbreaking pieces from such publications as The Atlantic, The New Yorker, The Weekly Standard, The New Republic, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Foreign Policy, Foreign Affairs, Commentary, and The American Scholar.
