The article offers information on the development of book sales, specifically in political science, in the U.S. The political science category failed to attract consumers despite the fast approaching presidential election. It states that the Democratic primaries drew out the political process and left many publishers and consumers alike guessing where to look for information. It claims that more emphasis on political issues rather than political parties in those books may have been the root cause of low sales in the category.
