The article reports that the day after the contentious 2004 presidential election, PublicAffairs Books, which publishes about 50 books per year, ran an advertisement campaign highlighting forthcoming political titles, hoping the appetite for political books will outlast the vanquished election hype. The company will kick off 2005 with its "Election 2004: How Bush Won and What You Can Expect in the Future," written by Newsweek reporters. Another major planned release is a biography of the controversial late Senator Strom Thurmond that will be published in February called Strom, written by Jack Bass and Marilyn Thompson.
