(Updated June 26) More than 20 candidates have announced a bid for the presidency, and many of them will lay out their policy positions on Wednesday and Thursday during the first Democratic presidential debate. Often, politicians release books pegged to their announcements to drive interest and give voters a chance to get to know them. Here is a guide to some of those books, which can provide insight into the candidates’ priorities and worldview.
This book does not lay out specific policy proposals, but rather “reads like a sweeping diagnosis of the nation’s political ills,” which include, in Bennet’s view, “a desperate aversion to bipartisan discussion and a crippling reliance on short-term thinking,” wrote our reviewer.
Though Biden has a three-book deal with Flatiron, his last book was this memoir of his son Beau’s last year of life. (He died in 2015.) “What’s most remarkable about this book,” wrote our reviewer, is that it gives us “full visibility into the agony and strangeness” of caring for and mourning his son while fulfilling his duties as vice president. But it’s also a political book, she added, “one in which Biden touts his accomplishments and makes frequent forays into the wetlands of foreign and domestic policy.”
Booker, raised in New Jersey and a former mayor of Newark, argues in this book that American politics should be reoriented around compassion and solidarity. He told The Times that writing it was “far, far more difficult than I had expected,” and he cried when writing about the toughest parts of his life, including the death of a mentor.
Buttigieg drew national attention when he wrote a coming-out essay for The South Bend Tribune, in particular because Mike Pence, who was governor of Indiana at the time, was championing a “religious freedom” bill that critics thought would discriminate against gays. In this memoir, parts of which our reviewer called “personal, beguiling and quite moving,” Buttigieg recalls this experience, as well as his career, from the Navy to politics.
The through line in Castro’s book is his grandmother, who emigrated from Mexico when she was 9 years old and helped raise Castro and his twin brother, Joaquín. Castro, who was a former Democratic mayor of San Antonio, Texas, explains how access to quality schooling shaped his professional path.
Delaney was a businessman before he ran for Congress, and in this book, he writes about why he left the private sector and what politicians can learn from entrepreneurs.
In this forthcoming memoir, Gabbard will write about her military career, as well as how she became the first Hindu woman elected to Congress in 2012.
In this women’s empowerment guide, Gillibrand recounts her political career, making the argument that if women were better represented in government, so too would be their issues. Our reviewer wrote that though in some ways this book stuck to the conventions of the political memoir, “there are moments of immensely appealing self-disclosure that seldom appear in other books of this genre.”
In this memoir, the California senator covers her time as attorney general, as well as her upbringing in Oakland, Calif., as the child of immigrant parents: an economist father from Jamaica and a mother from India who was a cancer researcher. It includes pages of vintage and recent photos from Harris’s life.
After being laid off from his job as a geologist at Wesleyan, he decided to open a brew pub, and the small business grew into a chain of pubs across the region. In this memoir, Hickenlooper tells how he went from entrepreneur to mayor of Denver, then governor of Colorado.
In order to build a sustainable green economy, Inslee says, the country needs the same sort of visionary leadership that led to the 1969 moon landing. This book is based on the work of a climate change advocacy group and think tank called Apollo Alliance, for which Inslee was a congressional sponsor.
The underlying theme of Klobuchar’s memoir is civility or, in her words, being able to “disagree without being disagreeable.” She traces her upbringing and rise in politics, all the while arguing that strategic alliances are crucial to solving the nation’s problems.
This book was written while O’Rourke and Byrd were representatives, and in it they argue that the war on drugs has backfired, instead creating a profitable black market for drug dealers. Their solution: legalize marijuana.
In this book Ryan extols the value of mindfulness and says it can improve all sectors of society, helping students learn, veterans heal and leaders lead.
Sestak explains how two tenets of the American character — individualism and common enterprise — underlie his proposed policy positions to help restore the nation’s system of meritocracy.
In this book, Sanders covers the two years since he ran for president in 2016. The chapters are dated like diary entries, and in them Sanders lays out his policy positions and describes his travels across the country, advancing his progressive platform.
Our reviewer calls Warren’s argument in this book “enlightened populism” — one vision of how the Democratic Party can lead after the 2016 presidential election upset. A former special adviser to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau under Obama, she calls for “restored financial regulation, stronger social programs and renewed investment in education, research and infrastructure” and also “makes good use of the autobiographical mode” by contrasting the opportunities she and her generation had — such as low-cost public universities — with stories of the current challenges of the middle class.
Williamson, who previously ran for Congress as an Independent, announced a bid for presidency in January. She is running as a Democrat. The spirituality and new age lecturer has written dozens of books, including “Healing the Soul of America: Reclaiming Our Voices as Spiritual Citizens,” which was written in response to what Williamson viewed as a crisis in American morality. “A Politics of Love” renews this vision, calling for Americans to act out of love rather than fear.
Yang, a Democrat, argues in his book that as technology continues to make many jobs obsolete, the government must take concrete steps to ensure economic stability for residents of the United States, including providing a universal basic income. This is the central promise of his campaign.
