The Huffington Post and BookBrewer are teaming up to release two politically minded ebooks that, if successful, will spark further releases in the future. Starting today, Arthur Delaney’s A People’s History of the Great Recession, and on September 20th, Aaron Belkin’s How We Won: Progressive Lessons from the Repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ will be released.
So what is the new book written by Arthur Delaney about and why should it matter? It is his first book and he is a major contributor to the Huff Post. The book covers what happened to the unemployed, the middle class, and “the every man” when the economic crisis began a few years ago. “Nearly every book about the economic crisis of the late 2000s focuses on the institutions that caused the recession and the brilliant geniuses who were at the top when it all went down,” said Delaney of his work. “This book is about the people on the bottom who got flattened—through no fault of their own.”
These two new books will run for $4.99 and can be purchased from the Amazon Kindle Store in the U.S., Germany, and U.K.; as well as Barnes & Noble Nook Bookstore, Apple iBookstore, and Kobo.
