Our appetite for incisive and articulate reporting and analysis have been sharpened and made more urgent by recent events. And columnists and reporters have, as a group, responded by writing at a higher level. Indeed, this may be something of a golden age of political commentary. This highly readable, entertaining compendium collects the best political writing from the past year, from insightful analyses of the national and local political scene to sharply drawn profiles of some of the nations most colorful political figures; from the contentious presidential election and its controversial resolution in the Supreme Court decision, Bush vs. Gore, to the ineradicable tragedy of September 11, and Americas prosecution of seemingly limitless war. Composed primarily of short articles, longer pieces of particular merit, and excerpts from notable books, The Best American Political Writing 2002 covers all points on the political spectrum, gathering from the op-ed pages of the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and other leading national newspapers; commentary from periodicals like The New Yorker, Harpers, The Nation, The Atlantic Monthly, Weekly Standard, and Foreign Affairs; publications of think tanks like the Heritage Foundation and the Manhattan Institute; Web-based magazines like Slate and Salon; and significant speeches including George W. Bushs address to Congress in the wake of the World Trade Center attacks. Selections come from the countrys finest political writers, including Pat Buchanan, Elizabeth Clift, E. J. Dionne, Hendrik Hertzberg, Christopher Hitchens, Molly Ivins, Bill Kristol, Anthony Lewis, William Safire, and many others. Together, their voices are adistillation of our national conversation.
