Dark Money by Jane Mayer (The Dark Side) offers an inside look the role of money in politics, from Whitewater to Citizens United. Emerging from Turbulence by Leon Grunberg takes a look at the conflict between employees, with their interest in security and wages, and stockholders, with their focus on returns, as viewed through the prism of the Boeing corporation. Before the Storm by Rick Perlstein chronicles the rise of the conservative movement “in detail and with panache,” from triumph (Barry Goldwater’s nomination) to tragedy (his defeat by Lyndon Johnson) to persistence.
