Shelves: memoir-autobio
Congresswoman Shirley Chisolm's account of her 1972 campaign for President. Her earlier memoir "Unbought and Unbossed" covered a lot of the same material about her political beliefs; this one is an insider's look at a bygone political process, with deft and often funny stories from the campaign trail. Chisolm probably wrote it to cover the huge personal debt that the she racked up by running the campaign, but that doesn't make it any less interesting.

Recommends it for: people who vote, people who don't; progressives who find themselves stuck in the Democratic Party
Shelves: biography-memoir
A refreshingly candid appraisal of Chisholm's 1972 presidential bid. Chisholm has a lot to say about the shortcomings of her own campaign and about the American political landscape more generally. Thirty five years later, we're still trying to learn the lessons she was trying to teach us.
